Enda Kenny to resign as Ireland’s Taoiseach


Enda Kenny has tendered his resignation as Irish Prime Minister but will continue as acting Prime Minister until a successor is appointed.



The first day of the 32nd Irish Parliament (Dail), Mr. Kenny, Micheal Martin, Gerry Adams and Richard Boyd Barrett failed in their bids to be Prime Minister. Talks will continue on forming a new government over the next 12 days before parliament’s next sitting on March 22. A grand coalition between Fine Gael and Fianna Fail appeared to be the only mathematically viable option after Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams ruled out supporting either party in government.
