Members of the Green Party have voted to allow the possibility of a coalition with other parties in any future government.
So, the Green Party at their recent national convention announced that are liable to enter a coalition in the next Dail but not with "Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael or any party whose policies and values conflict with those of the Green Party."
What exactly does this mean?
A) That the Greens will enter a confidence and supply agreement with FF or FG but not enter government with them.
B) That the Greens would seek to enter government with an ABFF/FG coalition.
C) That another convention would be held after the GE and pave the way for a coalition with FF or FG and the anti FF/FG line is just an electoral soundbite.
The Greens have gone into coalition government with FF and the remnants of the PDs before and this resulted in then leader Trevor Sargent TD resigning his position as leader and then becoming a minister in Ahern's government.
