 -- Published: Monday, 29 February 2016 | Print  | Disqus

Irish 10 Year Government Bond – 1 Day (Bloomberg)

The nation faces into a period of political instability after Prime Minister Enda Kenny’s coalition lost its majority in a general election according to Bloomberg.

Kenny’s government suffered massive losses in Friday’s vote, leaving an unprecedented grand alliance with traditional rival Fianna Fail as the only prospect for stable government. Kenny and Fianna Fail’s leadership ruled out a coalition before the election, though both took a less definitive line once the inconclusive outcome became clear.

The yield on Ireland’s 10-year bonds has fallen below 1 percent from 14.2 percent at the height of the financial crisis in 2011. Still, the spread between benchmark bonds and German securities of a similar maturity has increased to 76 basis points from 44 basis points six weeks ago, as uncertainty mounted over the election.

By late Sunday in Dublin, 146 of the 158 seats had been filled. Kenny’s Fine Gael had 46 seats, Fianna Fail had 42, with Sinn Fein taking 22. The Labour Party had 6, down from 37 in 2011. Seventy-nine seats are needed for a majority.
