Eoin Ó Broin, Sinn Féin TD and the porty’s chief negotiator in talks to form a new government
On RTÉ Radio One’s Morning Ireland.
[Sinn Féin TD] Eoin Ó Broin said while Sinn Féin’s preference was a left-wing coalition with the Social Democrats or the Green party the numbers are not there and that became clear on Tuesday after the General Election results.
“On Tuesday morning the broad progressive left had 66 TDs and that is not enough for government… What we have been saying since then is we want a government led by progressive left policies.”
…He (Micheál Martin) has said various things and there has not been clarity. Yesterday he suggested he is going to put Leo Varadkar back into office. If last week he wasn’t going talk to Fine Gael and now he is then he clearly changes his mind.”
