Next Irish Prime Minister is likely to be gay and a son of an Indian born doctor

The current Prime Minister (Taoiseach) of Ireland, Enda Kenny, has announced he will be stepping down, so there is currently a run off between two, for the Leadership of Kenny's Fine Gael party. The winner will most likely also assume the role of Prime Minister due to a voting pact with other parties.

The two in contention are Simon Coveney and Leo Varadkar, and the party vote will happen within 2 weeks. However, it is clear that Varadkar has done his homework and currently has a huge lead.

Here he is with his family

Varadkar is a medical doctor (son of a Mumbai born doctor), very clever and a smooth political operator. He came out in 2015 and lives with his partner.

Should make the traditional visit to the White House next St Patrick's day, very interesting !!!

2. Leo Varadkar has indeed won the Fine Gael leadership

Race against Simon Coveney, 60% to 40%.

Unless something unforeseen happens, he will be elected Taoiseach (Prime minister) in 11 days time.

Leo made mention in his victory speech that it says a lot for Ireland that an openly gay son of an immigrant can ride to lead his country.
