Taoiseach Leo Varadkar Rules Out General Election This Year, Preferring to Complete Full Dáil Term Ending in 2025
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has dismissed the possibility of a general election in Ireland this year, expressing a preference for completing the full term of the Dáil, which concludes in early 2025. With the requirement for a general election by March 2025, Varadkar’s remarks indicate a leaning towards a repeat of the February polling day seen in 2020. During an interview on RTÉ Radio One’s This Week programme, he affirmed, “I’m not planning one,” emphasising his dedication to addressing the people’s priorities such as housing, cost of living, public safety, and economic stability. Varadkar also downplayed the significance of several Fine Gael TDs not seeking re-election, considering it a normal aspect of the political process. While not disclosing whether the upcoming election would be his last as Fine Gael leader, he expressed confidence in Fine Gael’s continued presence in government post the next election, citing his 21-year political tenure and commitment to serving the community.
