Brendan Howlin is to resign as the leader of the Labour Party.

The Wexford man made the announcement this afternoon in Dublin.

It follows a disappointing general election for the party.

Joan Burton lost her seat in Dublin West, which means Labour will only have 6 TD's sitting tin the 33rd Dail.

Howlin also revealed that Labour will not formally enter government, a decision backed by its parliamentary party.

However, the Labour Party is open to supporting a programme for the government on certain issues from the opposition benches.
