TDs should be threatened with a wage cut if they don't form a new Government soon.
The Dáil will hold a second vote for Taoiseach today and Independent Tipperary Deputy, Mattie McGrath, says there should be penalties if the stalemate carries on.
Micheál Martin, Enda Kenny and the first woman - Ruth Coppinger - will all be nominated for the top job later but it is expected no one will win.
The Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil leaders have finally agreed to their first face-to-face meeting this evening.
However Mattie McGrath has said a time limit needs to be placed on the talks: “I’d give it another two weeks at most.
“The country can’t afford it. If we go on much longer the people will decide they don’t need a Government, we are getting on fine without ye.
“They should talk about sending us home or cutting the wages maybe or doing something to focus the minds because it is just a flux situation that is very dangerous.
“It is not good for the country or the people.”
