In Full: Leo Varadkar announces resignation

Leo Varadkar is set to resign as Ireland’s prime minister and leader of his Fine Gael party in a move that will increase pressure on his coalition government to call a general election.

The Taoiseach will reportedly quit in a noon announcement in the courtyard of Government Buildings, bringing an end to his second stint as Ireland’s leader.

Mr Varadkar, 45, will step down after suffering defeat in a referendum held to remove sexist language about women’s duties in the home from the Irish Constitution
