AFTER SUCCESSFULLY MAKING it through three Budgets, Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil are set to sit down in the coming days and weeks to discuss the renewal of the confidence and supply agreement.

Fianna Fáil has propped up the Fine Gael government for some time, after agreeing a deal following the 2016 election to back them on key issues.

Micheál Martin wrote to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar last week urging him not to call an election, given the risk of “creating a dangerous instability” during a crucial time in the Brexit negotiations.

Both sides have announced their negotiating teams in the past 24 hours, with Tánaiste Simon Coveney leading the Fine Gael team, with deputy Fianna Fáil leader Dara Calleary in that party’s team.

So, today we’re asking you: Do you want to see the confidence and supply renewed or would you rather an election?
