The Green Party chairman Dan Boyle has said he does not have confidence in the Defence Minister Willie O'Dea.
In a message posted on twitter tonight, Senator Boyle said Mr O'Dea's situation is compromised and he does not have confidence in him.
He also said there is "probably a few chapters in this story yet".
Earlier, Mr O'Dea survived a confidence vote in the Dáil with the help of his Green Party colleagues.
Opposition parties had called for his resignation after he admitted making a false statement to the high court last year.
