Greens target six areas for red line coalition talks with parties

The Green Party intend to tease out red lines among parties for coalition options this week as they begin a series of bi-lateral talks around six key policy areas.

His comments came as attention turns towards the Dáil vote for Taoiseach this week and ongoing backroom talks between parties to agree on some kind of coalition to lead the next government.Mr Ryan's party has secured agreement from the civil service and state agencies to vet policies in the talks and to analyse different party approaches to voter concerns, such as housing and climate change.

The Greens will ask each of the parties vying to be in government to take part in meetings that will last a day and a half, to iron out differences in areas, including:meeting climate and biodiversity targetssolving the housing crisisimplementing health reform and Slaintecare

A priority for the party in its initial talks last week with others was how to ensure Ireland can meet its proposed carbon emissions reduction of 7% annually by 2030 across sectors and society.With Sinn Féin now ruled out for coalition by Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael, the latter two will need the Greens to cobble together a three-way coalition with over 80 Dail seats.

Mr Ryan said this was the third time his party had been involved in government formation talks and that it would “take several weeks to get the detail right".Speaking to RTE's This Week, he cautioned against parties just having just a “veneer” to implement significant changes in housing, health or transport policies and admitted his party was prepared to stay in opposition.

“It can't be just forming a government for the sake of making up the numbers,” added Mr Ryan.He said he hoped the proposed six-strand approach to bi-lateral talks would be fill “an unhealthy gap”, given the focus on numbers and allegiances in recent days.

Earlier, Green Party Dublin-Final TD Joe O'Brien signalled that significant carbon emission cut targets, in the order of 7.6%, would have to be “part of” any new government's agenda and that this would mean “changes in variety of ways” in society. He added:

Greens to invite parties to policy talksThe Green Party's Joe O'Brien has said the party will invite all parties to bilateral meetings this week to discuss their policies. Country needs to work on having a new election. This is getting silly at this stage. Black going in with white to prevent gray. Forget the bluster over the next weeks, I can tell you the conclusion now. greenparty_ie will prop up FG/FF. Lest they forget, propping up the old guard could enable the same wipe out as the ‘UK’ LibDems suffered regarding tuition fees. Another election is the only fair result

Greens to invite other parties to discuss key issues for next governmentThe Green Party is seeking to hold talks with other political parties on how a new government could deliver on the issues of housing, healthcare and combating climate change. You partner FF/FG in C+S arrangement you are done in the south. Please make abolishing the 1964 mandatory fluoridation Act a red line for greenparty_ie support for any new Government. It needs to be ended this year Good to be able to put ones ballot paper in the ballot box without impediment.
