Fianna Fáil leader Michael Martin says his party will not enter into a grand coalition with Fine Gael following the general election.

In last night's leaders' debate, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he would be willing to form a grand coalition to provide a stable government.

However, Micheal Martin says Fine Gael has been in power too long and has failed to deliver for the people.

He clarified today that a completely new government is needed.

"We will not be entering into a grand coalition," he said.

"People want change in this country: they want Fine Gael out of office.

"We want to go into government with other centre parties. Clearly, the Labour and the Green parties are ones that we would be interested in going into government with. That is our very clear position.

"Fine Gael need to come out of government."
