DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland's main opposition party urged Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to remove the threat of a snap election from talks to renew their government deal until any Brexit agreement has been ratified by the British parliament.

Varadkar's Fine Gael party formed a minority government in 2016 under the "confidence and supply" deal with the largest opposition party, Fianna Fail, which agreed to abstain from opposition-driven votes over the course of three annual budgets.
