Cowen must demand Callely’s resignation-O Caoláin
Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghín O Caoláin has today called on Brian Cowen to demand the immediate resignation of Senator Ivor Callely.
Ó Caoláin said:
"Ivor Callely was a Taoiseach's nominee to the Seanad and in light of the ongoing controversy surrounding him it is now up to the Taoiseach to demand his resignation. He has so far received no sanction from either the Fianna Fáil party or the Taoiseach.
"We currently have a situation where Fianna Fáil and Green Party members are calling for some action on the matter but to date the Taoiseach has provided no leadership. It is time that Brian Cowen removed his head from the sand and realised that he needs to make a clear and unambiguous statement on this issue." ENDS
