Fine Gael ministers, TDs and senators are pushing for Leo Varadkar to go first as Taoiseach in a coalition with Fianna Fáil and the Greens.

The issue has been raised by a number of Fine Gael ministers privately in recent days, while TDs and senators also discussed it during a video conference yesterday. It comes as Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Green Party negotiators formally began talks to form a government last night.
