HOWLIN CONSIDERING RUNNING FOR LABOUR PARTY LEADERSHIP

Brendan Howlin has hinted he will make a decision on whether to run for Labour Party leadership “in the next day or two”.

The Public Expenditure Minister says he will be making a decision on what role he will play in the reform of the party.

He also paid tribute to outgoing leader Eamon Gilmore – and said the change of leader will strengthen the party.

When asked if he was making a leadership pitch, Minister Howlin said he would make a decision in the near future.

“There will be a team of people – and that’s every member of the parliamentary party, every consistency organisation – who collectively have to be part of the reform” he said.

“So I’ll be part of that; what role I’ll play, I’m going to decide in the next day or two” he added.
