Kenny claims Fine Gael’s stance could change

Fine Gael has decided to prepare for opposition in the next Dáil after a long meeting of its parliamentary party.


A number of TDs said they don’t want to enter a grand coalition with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael will step back from government negotiations.


The cabinet meets this evening for the first time since the election and will stay on in a caretaker role until a new government is formed.


Sinn Fein’s justice spokesman, Sligo Leitrim TD, Martin Kenny, believes last night’s decision by Fine Gael’s parliamentary party doesn’t change much with the respective parties only taking initial position at this stage of negotiations.
