Sinn Féin TD for Kerry, Pa Daly, has called for local TDs to back the party’s Dáil motion of no-confidence in the government. The motion will be debated in the Dáil this week.
Teachta Daly said that this is a government that has now lost its parliamentary majority, and is failing to tackle the cost of living and housing crises.
“It’s time to make way for a government that will put workers and families first,” he added.
Tuesday is D-Day
“Sinn Féin’s motion will be debated in the Dáil on Tuesday and TDs have a choice to make. If the Independents feel that government is doing a good job on important issues, then they should support the government.
“ If they don’t believe they are doing a good job, then they should vote in favour of our motion.
“Halfway through the full Dáil term, the government has reacted to some issues after intense pressure from opposition parties.
However, we don’t have any confidence that the government is able to deliver on key issues affecting us since the general election in 2020 – namely housing and health.
Prompt on Pension Age Move
“Government has moved on some issues, such as pension age, after persistent pressure from Sinn Féin. But they have refused to bring forward an emergency budget – now – to tackle the rising cost of living and they have refused to cut the cost of energy utilities, rents or childcare at a time when so many are in crisis.
“This is a government that is out of ideas, out of touch and out of time. People in Kerry are paying the price for this government’s failures.
Take Sides Now!
“TDs have a choice. They can vote for more of the same, or they can join with us and vote for change.
“This is the time to take sides – you can stand with workers and families, or stand with the chaos and dysfunction of the current government,” said Teachta Daly.
