Ireland to Hold Early Elections

January 20, 2011

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen announced Thursday that early elections will be held on March 11.

While Cowen and his party Fianna Fail have lost support among the Irish people due to their role in Ireland’s economic collapse, the final nail in the coffin was occurred on Wednesday when several cabinet members not seeking relection resigned in order to allow other party members to hold these positions to gain prominence before the elections. Fianna Fail’s junior coalition partner, the Green Party, refused to approve the new postings and forced Fianna Fail to set a new election date.
