Sinn Féin trying to form ruling coalition in Ireland

As the second day of counting is set to get under way in Ireland, the Sinn Féin party has taken 24.5% of the vote, compared to 22.2% for Fianna Fáil and 20.9% for Fine Gael (incumbent PM Leo Varadkar’s party). No one party will win enough seats for an outright majority. Sinn Féin President Mary McDonald said she was exploring options to form a government without either Fine Gael or Fianna Fáil.
