Governing part(ies)… February 13, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Fianna Fáil will not support Sinn Féin’s motion of no confidence in the Government over the Garda whistleblower row, The Irish Times has learned.
The Dáil will this week debate the motion, which follows revelations over child protection agency Tusla wrongly sending false allegations about Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe to gardaí.
The party has not ruled out amending the motion tabled by Sinn Féin.
However, as per the arrangements of the confidence and supply agreement between Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael, it will abstain.
The government may fall on this issue, but it won’t be today, or tomorrow or likely this week.
