RTE Reports this evening that there are renewed calls for James Reilly to resign as Minister for Health
"Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil have today repeated their calls for the Minister for Health, James Reilly, to resign from his position.
Sinn Féin's spokesperson on Public Expenditure and Reform, Mary Lou McDonald, said today that it was clear to her that Dr Reilly should not be the Minister for Health.
She said the Sinn Féin party did not have any confidence in him, and he was presiding over "shambles after shambles" in the department.
She said the latest information released under the Freedom of Information, which showed the minister had been making changes to a list of primary care centre sites almost right upon until they were announced, was evidence of "stroke politics".
Fianna Fáil's spokesperson on Transport, Tourism and Sport, Timmy Dooley, said Minister Reilly had bungled the entire operation of the Department of Health and the HSE.
Mr Dooley said the latest developments made it "abundantly clear that this was political stroking at its worst"."
The Independent reported
Two Labour MEPs -- Phil Prendergast and Nessa Childers -- also called on Dr Reilly to step down. Ms Childers said his position was untenable, while Ms Prendergast accused the minister of "the old 'you scratch my back politics'".
So will Reilly stay on or will he be pushed?
