A Fianna Fáil-Labour Government could be a possibility after the next General Election, according to one Labour TD.
The comments from Labour TD Dominic Hannigan come after Minister for Public Expenditure Brendan Howlin said previously that a voting pact between Fine Gael and Labour is in the best interests of both parties.
Speaking ahead of this morning's Cabinet meeting, Minister Howlin said the two parties have proved they can tackle issues that would divide many Governments.
However, speaking to LMFM this morning, Labour TD Dominic Hannigan said he could not rule out a Fianna Fáil-Labour coalition.
"Come the next election, we want to maximise the number of seats for the Labour Party," he said.
"After that, we'll sit down, we'll look at how the Irish people have voted, we look at where potential Governments could be formed.
"If Fianna Fáil are part of the mix then, I think we have to. I think it's our duty to talk to any party that we can go into Government with to provide stable, secure Government for the country."
Also speaking to LMFM, the Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin said nothing is off the table when it comes to the Labour party.
“I haven’t ruled out anything with the Labour Party, at all,” he said.
