Sinn Fein To Move Motion Of No Confidence In Coveney next Week

Sinn Fein is to table a motion of no-confidence in Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney in the Dáil next week.

The party says he hasn't  credibly explained the way the appointment of former minister Katherine Zappone as a UN Special Envoy was handled. They also  say the process wasn't transparent

Yesterday Sinn Fein called on Micheál Martin to remove Minister Coveney from Office or it would table the motion, but the Taoiseach said he has confidence in the Fine Gael Minister..

Sinn Féin has said the short-lived appointment amounted to cronyism and fell below the standard expected of a government.
