Our neighbours in the Republic of Ireland are living in interesting times - Aiken

The Ulster Unionist Party Leader, Steve Aiken OBE MLA, has commented on yesterday’s election, held in the Republic of Ireland. 

Steve Aiken OBE MLA said:

“The results of yesterday’s election in the Irish Republic show a fracturing of the traditional Fianna Fail/Fine Gael ‘duopoly.’

“That there appears to be no party large enough to command the support for a majority government will face the Irish electorate with the choice between another potentially inconclusive election, or a coalition government between a centre right party, heavily leaning on international banking and FDI from the USA, and a hard left party, with a less than transparent relationship with its violent past, and whose economic and social policy influences are those of Venezuela and Cuba.

“Our neighbours are living in interesting, if worrying times.”
