Greens and PDs challenged to present united front with Taoiseach on his return from Africa

16 January, 2008


Sinn Féin Dáil Leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD has said if the Green Party and the PDs intend to remain in Government with the Taoiseach then Ministers Gormley and Harney should greet Taoiseach Bertie Ahern at Dublin Airport on his return from Africa to present a united Government front in the wake of calls for the Taoiseach's resignation.

He said, "The PDs and the Greens are trying to have it both ways by not expressing full confidence in the Taoiseach while at the same time remaining in Government with him.

"If they intend to remain in Government with the Taoiseach then Ministers Gormley and Harney should be at Dublin Airport to greet him on his return from Africa to present a united Government front to the waiting media.

"Not once since this Government was formed have I seen these three leaders share a platform." ENDS
