It was 1st February, 2011 when the Taoiseach announced the dissolution of the Dail and called a general election for Friday 25th February, 2011. This page keeps track of major political decisions on NAMA and the financial crisis from 1st February to the general election, particularly in light of comments made by Minister for Finance, Brian Lenihan on 9th February, 2011 where the reason he gave for deferring the next recapitalisation of Bank of Ireland, AIB and EBS was that the decisions needed the mandate that would only be provided by a new government. Because this page is being created on 10th February, 2011 some previous announcements might be missed (the DoF website does not file all announcements in the same place).
