Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
There has been much speculation in the media and elsewhere about the timing of the next general election. The Constitution is clear that Dáil Éireann shall be dissolved if the Taoiseach chooses to go to the President to seek a dissolution or if he or his Government loses the confidence of this House. There is speculation that the Taoiseach is to arrange a meeting with the leader of Fianna Fáil to fix such a date.
Is it the Taoiseach's intention to have such a discussion and will other party leaders be involved? Has the Taoiseach determined when this Dáil should come to its end?
