Leo Varadkar has said he wants to remain leader of Fine Gael no matter what the result of the election is. 

"The opinion polls are within the margin of error so this can be won, but if that doesn't happen I've indicated that I will seek to stay on as Fine Gael leader," he said.

Earlier, the Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin said his party was taking nothing for granted with three days to go before voting takes place in Election 2020.

Speaking at the party's election headquarters this morning, Mr Martin said he had been getting 'great feedback' after last night's debate on RTÉ with Leo Varadkar and Mary Lou McDonald.

The Fianna Fáil leader said Fine Gael had failed to provide details of funding for '80% of its promises' and that Sinn Féin hadn't given funding details for '70% of its proposals'.

The Labour Party leader, Brendan Howlin, said the electorate was in flux and that there was a significant number of people who had not made up their minds.

He said people wanted change and that some were opting for Sinn Féin for the simple reason that they hadn't been in government in the Republic.

He said that wasn't a very good reason and he believed his party's track record would convince a 'decent number' of people to vote Labour.
