Varadkar open to unity government without SF
Leo Varadkar is open to forming a national unity government, as long as it does not involve Sinn Fein, the Sunday Independent can reveal.
Mr Varadkar, the acting Taoiseach, is prepared to begin negotiations with every other party and Independent TDs, about forming a government to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. However, he will not enter into an arrangement involving Mary Lou McDonald’s Sinn Fein.
The unity government being proposed would remain in place for the duration of the national health crisis and the first phase of the recovery.
