Political crisis in Ireland

Economic crisis led the country into political deadlock in Ireland.

Irisih Prime Minister Brian Cowen resigned from the leadership of Fianna Fail party, following the resignation of 6 ministers from the cabinet earlier this week.

Cowen said he will lead the government until general elections in March.

However, the opposition and some deputies from his own party showed reactions to this manoeuvre of the prime minister.

The opposition defined this will of the prime minister as an insult to democracy. The opposition is planning to take the prime minister down from office in a vote of confidence to be held at the parliament this week.

6 ministers demanding the resignation of Prime Minsiter Cowen resigned from their posts in the cabinet.
