Enda Kenny re-elected as Prime Minister of Ireland

Taoiseach Enda Kenny was re-elected as Prime Minister of Ireland. Kenny, leader of Fine Gael party, was elected for the post 70 days after a general election which had produced no outright winner.

He was re-appointed with 59 votes in favour and 49 votes against. His Gael party won the most seats in the election but fell short of the quota needed to rule without support. This means that Kenny will lead a minority Fine Gael government.
