The World

June 18, 1989

Irish Prime Minister Charles Haughey's Fianna Fail party failed in its gamble to win a majority in snap parliamentary elections, but he vowed to form a new government and remain in power. Official results showed the party fell six seats short of a majority, winning 77 seats, four fewer than it held before Thursday's election. The main center-right opposition party, Fine Gael, was second with 55. Left-wing parties made a strong showing, with the Labor Party and Workers Party capturing a total of 22 seats.
