Negotiations on the Coalition’s new deal are finished, Independent.ie has learned.
But the timing of the announcement of the reshuffle is still unclear, with some Government figures expecting this evening – but most saying it will be tomorrow.
Finance Minister Michael Noonan and Public Spending Minister Brendan Howlin are also understood to have signed off on the agreement this afternoon.
“He [Mr Kenny] could go with it today. Everything is finished,” a senior Government source said about the reshuffle.
Alongside the reshuffle, the Government parties will publish a set of areas in the Programme for Government, which will get a particular focus over the next 21 months.
The reshuffle has to be announced in the Dail, which would require a change to the Order of Business.
