Fine Gael has released a video on social media mounting a defence for Minister of Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney, ahead of the no-confidence vote tomorrow.
Last week, Sinn Féin confirmed they will table a motion of no confidence in Coveney following the controversy surrounding the appointment of Katherine Zappone as a UN Special Envoy.
In the video this morning, Fine Gael said Coveney is an “asset to Ireland”, expressing Coveney’s credentials in handling Brexit.
“Simon Coveney is an asset to Ireland and his record is clear”, Fine Gael said.
It goes on to dismiss Sinn Féin’s motion of no-confidence in the Minister as a “headline grabbing stunt”.
Sinn Féin will use their speaking slot tomorrow to table a motion of no confidence in Minister Coveney.
