The Irish election of 1992

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The general election in the Republic of Ireland, held on 25 November 1992, resulted in a spectacular success for the Labour Party, the largest of the three left wing parties in the Dáil, the National Assembly. The incumbent government party, Fianna Fáil, lost 9 seats and the main opposition party, Fine Gael, was reduced by 10. The result made a coalition government inevitable and, following extensive negotiations, Fianna Fáil and Labour formed a government on 12 January 1993. The result of the election is summarized in Table 1 (p. 182). The turnout, 68.5 per cent was the same as the previous election. The national swing from Fianna Fáil was 5.0 per cent.
