Fine Gael Keeps Options Open As Talks Continue To Form Next Government

Fine Gael's Parliamentary Party has been meeting for almost five hours to discuss how the party should approach government formation talks.

A number of senior party members have cautioned against going into coalition with Fianna Fáil.

But others like Tánaiste Simon Coveney have suggested a more open-minded approach given the reality of the numbers in this Dáil.

The party is expected to stay out of initial government formation negotiations headed by Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil.
