May 2020 “Is the right moment” for a general election, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has told Fine Gael TDs in a speech today.
Speaking at the party’s annual away day in Cork, Varadkar said he had always believed that the next election should take place in the summer of 2020.
Varadkar said, “I think May 2020 is the right moment. It will allow to us to complete a full parliamentary session in the new year, discharge our Government duties around St Patrick’s Day and the March European Council and have a new Government in place well in advance of the next summer recess.“
Is this soon enough?
