Saturday 8th February has been confirmed as the date for the general election.

As anticipated, Taoiseach Leo Varadker named the date at this morning's Cabinet meeting but has taken many by surprise with the selection of a Saturday for polling day.

The Taoiseach will visit Áras an Uachtaráin this afternoon to ask President Michael D. Higgins to dissolve the 32nd Dáil and to summon the new Dáil on 20th February.

Mayo-based Minister Michael Ring believes a Saturday poll will provide a greater opportunity for students and people working away from home during the week to cast their votes.
