Deputy Fergus O’Dowd has confirmed that he will be supporting Leo Varadkar TD in the upcoming Fine Gael leadership contest.
“I made this decision some time ago and I'm confident that Leo Varadkar is the right person who can lead Fine Gael and Ireland into the next generation of politics” Deputy O’Dowd said.
“Leo is a person whom I hold in the highest regard, I believe he has the experience, skill and integrity to provide the leadership our country needs and deserves.
“Leo has the qualities that I believe will bring Fine Gael and our country into a new era of social inclusion and fairness that will be to the benefit of every person throughout the country.
“I look forward to the next fortnight that I hope will reinvigorate the Fine Gael party and its members. This is a massive opportunity for us to capture the hearts and minds of the younger generation who have become disenfranchised by the last decade of politics.”
