GREEN PARTY leader Eamon Ryan says he's not counting his chickens in terms of securing a seat after a bitter lesson during the European elections.
He told Independent.ie today: "I think I've a chance but nothings certain. Last time I was in the RDS I left a 3am in the morning I thought I'd won a European seat, by 4am in the morning I didn't so we're going to have to wait and see, it's very competitive in Dublin Bay South".
Ryan also spoke about the potential for a new government following early indications of a very spread out vote across a range of parties and Independents.
"It's very hard to see what can come out of it other than maybe Fianna Fail and Fine Gael and if that happens it will be an incredibly historic day, it will be the end of the Civil War almost 100 years on but no-one knows yet.
"It is a change and I think maybe a positive one. There's a variety of different options people have picked. That’s how they see the world at this time and I think we should respect that and hopefully somehow or other a stable government comes out of it", he said at the RDS this morning.
