Irish opposition calls Deputy Prime Minister Fitzgerald to resign
DUBLIN - Reuters
Ireland's Deputy Prime Minister Frances Fitzgerald has to resign or else she will force a snap election next month, a senior member of the opposition party propping up the country's minority government said on Nov. 27.
"I think the Tanaiste (deputy prime minister) should recognize that unless she does stand aside, she is going to force this country into an election nobody wants, that nobody needs and is not in the country's interests," Fianna Fail's Jim O'Callaghan told national broadcaster RTE.
"I don't see any other method out of this."
