FG Denies Hotel Bookings For Leadership Vote

Fine Gael has denied reports that it’s booked hotels for a date later this month to allow members vote on a new leader.

It follows a newspaper report that said a series of hotels had been booked for Friday the 26th of May as venues for polling stations.

Party members would have to attend the stations to cast votes for a new party leader, as part of any process to replace Enda Kenny.


But a party spokesman says the report is inaccurate and no hotels or venues have been booked by the party.
