Kenny in talks to form Govt

The Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny says he's going to talk to the leader of the Greens, Labour and the PDs with a view to forming a government.

Enda Kenny says the seat tallies mean either side could be in power - but has again ruled out doing a deal with Sinn Féin.

He says the election results - in which Fine Gael and Labour's 'Alliance for Change' gained twenty seats - need a great deal of analysis and attention.

The Fine Gael leader is now going to talk to Pat Rabbitte, Trevor Sargent, Mary Harney and the independents about forming a Government.

But he's reiterating that he won't go into power with Sinn Féin.

If they all were to agree - they'd have 84 seats between them - versus 78 for Fianna Fáil.
