Irish General election: Who will be the next Prime Minister is?

Feb 16,2020 5:27 am

Mary Lou McDonald ' s party was head and shoulders above the rest in the course does count in many choice

10 February now two equally important moments for Mary Lou McDonald.

In 2018, it Will mark The Day as Sinn Féin President .

Two years later, it marked the beginning of a new era for The Party , under your leadership, how it.

The Party 's success, experts, high-ranking Sinn Féin surprised strategists and even some of the candidates: one of them, Patricia Ryan , had been on holiday during The Campaign , so slender were their chances of winning a seat.

We know now, Sinn Féin have led the survey in the majority of the constituencies and increased the number of seats from 14 to a remarkable result.

However, as the General voice of Sinn Féin is broken, not necessarily end up in the Government despite his swath of victories.

The Magic number for winning a majority Government in The Republic of Ireland is 80 seats.

None of the three major parties, Fine Gael , Fianna to find Fail and now Sinn Féin - came-somewhere in the vicinity.

So, what happens next?

Attempts to form a new coalition-the varieties are always in progress, although this can be very complex.

the Previous administrations in The Republic of Ireland have been forged this way, But it took a while to get there.

In 2016, it took, after the parties agreed to a confidence and supply agreement that saw a Cabinet of Fine Gael members and independents supported by Fianna Fail votes on key policy areas.

Micheál Martin could end up as Taoiseach - But at what political price

With all of the 160 seats in the Dáil (Irish Parliament) declared that the parties should reconvene in The Chamber 20. February.

But it seems unlikely that an agreement on the Will of the Government in the next Eight Days .

Why is this so?

in contrast to the recent Irish elections, which was dominated by The Other two parties, the means Sinn Féin Breakthrough , there are more possibilities for a Government .

Mrs. McDonald, has begun to reach out to some of the smaller parties - The Greens , labor party, solidarity, people Before Profit and the Social Democrats -to see if their numbers combined, could be enough.

She Said : "the worst result" would Fail a Government with Fine Gael and Fianna .

But Sinn Féin can be very well given at the end of the work with one of them, that a whole coalition of left parties, not a working majority.

Then there is the bigger head-scratcher, what has Fianna Fail party, now has The Most seats.

leader Micheál Martin has said repeatedly during The Campaign that he would not work with Sinn Féin, due to its historic links to The Ira .

As a result, the rollers began, Mr Martin gave an interview to appear to keep the door open to the prospect of a new Government with Sinn Féin.

- Who Will be the next Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) is?

It could be, Micheál Martin , But at what political price?

There is speculation that, if Fianna Fail and Sinn Féin together agreed with the Government that could be used to rotate The Position between them.

On Monday, Mary Lou McDonald said that she believed that she "May well be the next Taoiseach ".

Fine Gael , which is now the third largest party, has not yet repeated its commitment, the Will , the Government with Sinn Féin.

It was in Government for nine years and in the face of a bad election result, is likely to be in the opposition.

thinking of Fine Gael and Fianna Fail seems to be that Sinn Féin, as 'won' the election, to hit the ground running, on the formation of the next Government .

And Then check the stability of any new Government coalition Will be.

in short, there are a lot of concerns for the three major parties But have no precedent of how it could unfold.

Leo Varadkar Will continue - But for how long?

Who knows?

He Will continue as Deputy Prime Minister until a deal is agreed, the new Government effectively in the office, But without Power .

Leo Varadkar seems to stay out of the race, as Taoiseach , But how long Will he stay, Fine Gael ?

While he won't respond with a solid international reputation because of its role in Brexit Negotiations , the voters, to stand back the Problem, and already there were some calls for Fine Gael .

the Former Fine Gael minister James Reilly said The Party had a "number of mistakes" in The Campaign - But Mr Varadkar's Deputy, Simon Coveney , defended him and insisted that he should continue to be on top.

The importance of what is done can not be overstated.

The Republic of Ireland has chosen, in most part, for the same two centre-right parties for decades.

Even if Sinn Féin is not in the Power This Time , it Will be hard for a party to be overlooked, however, in the Government , to what has been said by the Irish electorate, the you in the elections.

Time - and possibly much of it - Time Will Tell .
