We don’t need another charade of a Dáil sitting – Gerry Adams TD
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD, speaking in advance of tomorrow’s Dáil sitting, has said “Sinn Féin will move a motion tomorrow to postpone the election of a Taoiseach if it seems likely the vote will be inconclusive”.
“What we don’t need is another charade of a Dáil sitting to tell us what we already know - that neither Fine Gael nor Fianna Fáil can form a minority government tomorrow.
“Sinn Féin is of the firm view that we should have a proper sitting of the Dáil tomorrow to discuss legislation and motions, and that it should not sit to facilitate another bout of play acting from the two largest parties, who know well they don’t have the numbers to form a government.
“Whilst there will be statements on housing at the insistence of Sinn Féin, there are other important issues impacting on the lives of citizens that the Dáil should be dealing with, including health, water charges and industrial disagreements in a number of sectors.”
