Hopes of forging a historic coalition between Ireland'south two traditional political foes have been dashed after one party, Fianna Fail, decided it cannot partner Prime Minister Enda Kenny in government.

Thursday'south decision at a Dublin meeting of Fianna Fail lawmakers leaves two possible outcomes from Ireland'south inconclusive election. That Feb. twenty-six vote reduced Kenny'south Fine Gael to nearly equal terms with Fianna Fail in an exceptionally fractured parliament.

Either party could attempt to form a feeble minority government that'd require the other party'south acquiescence in parliamentary votes to survive. Ireland latest had such a government in 1987-89, when a Fianna Fail administration negotiated vote-by-vote backing from Fine Gael. Fianna Fail has never returned that favor.

Kenny could call a second election in hopes of strengthening his center-ground party's position.
