Irish Lawmakers Back New Coalition Government

Ireland’s lawmakers backed a new coalition government on Saturday, nearly five months after an inconclusive election that saw an antiestablishment party grab the largest share of votes cast.

The new coalition will see two previously fierce rivals—Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael—work together with the Green Party as Ireland seeks to contain the novel coronavirus and prepares for new trade barriers with the U.K., a key economic partner.
