Gerry Adams has said Sinn Fein is open to forming a coalition with any party depending on the outcome of the Republic's general election.

Mr Adams also said he does not have a "desire" to lead the county but he is "prepared" to be Taoiseach.

Speaking this afternoon outside Leinster House, he said "anything could happen" in the election but said his party is open to forming a government with whatever party or parties receive a mandate from the electorate.

However, he said it is "too early" to speculate on which parties will form the next government and urged people to have the "manners" to let voters make their choice.

He said Sinn Fein will not urge people to vote "Adams for Taoiseach".
