FINE GAEL IS divided on whether to call a general election before April 2016, the Sunday Independent reports.

Support for the party has fallen by 4% in the last month according a new opinion poll.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny is staunchly opposed to an early election, according to the paper.

However, plans are afoot within the party to either draft next year’s Budget and call an election, or hold one after positive measures start to kick in at the start of 2016.

We want to know what you think: Should a general election be held before April 2016?


Poll Results:

Yes (14442)
No (2571)
I don't know. (469)
