If the government will not properly deal with the housing crisis there should be a general election, according to Sinn Féin.
The comments come as a new Daft.ie report shows rents are higher than they have ever been across the country.
There has been a 12.4% increase over the past year, with Waterford city seeing a 20% rise in prices.
Sinn Féin’s David Cullinane says despite the issues in the housing sector, they will not be revisiting a motion of no confidence in Minister Eoghan Murphy.
“Obviously if the government doesn’t take decisive action then what we want is a general election, not just no-confidence motions.
“So whatever about motions of no-confidence, all of those issues would be dealt with by Sinn Féin after we return after the summer recess.”
