Political turmoil following Ireland’s parliamentary elections; close votes of three major parties
While Ireland’s Saturday parliamentary vote count continues, opinion polls show that Ireland’s three main political parties have garnered the same percentage of votes.
Polls after the election show voters have a moderate Finnae Gail party, with Leo Varadkar, Prime Minister of Ireland, Fina Fuil a center-right party and Shin Fine leftist party. Ireland has each won about 2% of the vote.
The poll was conducted by Ipsus MRI and reported a margin of error of 1.2%.
The result of the poll, if approved by the votes, means that the future government of Ireland is inevitably a coalition government and that Shane Finn could be a key player in the negotiations for forming a government.
