It’s been nineteen months since Irish voters went to the polls to vote in the 33rd Dáil Éireann.
The election was a three-party race, with Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin and Fine Gael each winning a share of between 20% and 25% of the overall vote.
Fianna Fáil finished with 38 seats, Sinn Féin received 37 seats and Fine Gael won 35 seats.
On June 26th 2020, Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party voted to enter Government under the Programme for Government. Sinn Féin fit in to lead the opposition.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has took charge of the coalition Government for the past fifteen months, leading the country through the pandemic, and in recent times dealing with re-emerging issues, such as the housing crisis.
Would you support a General Election in Ireland before the end of 2021?
Or, do you believe such a move would be unnecessary?
