DUBLIN ugg classic mini noir , Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Hopes for continued economic recovery are on the minds of Irish voters as they go to the polls on Friday.


Though each of the four major parties have focused their campaigns on economic policies with varying degrees of tax relief and social spending, final hour polls still suggest no clear leader in the race, and a high possibility for either a hung parliament, or else a historically unlikely coalition in government.


In the previous election held in 2011, the voting public responded unequivocally to the economic crisis that hit Ireland in late 2008 by holding the then majority government Fianna Fail (Republican Party) ) accountable -- they lost 51 of their 71 seats.


Many voters would have voted against Fianna Fail for the first time in reaction to personal losses from the financial crisis, bucking decades-long family traditions since the Irish Civil War.


"Unlike in most other countries with a left-right divide ugg basse grise , Irish political allegiances to the two largest political parties stem from civil war era loyalties," explained political scientist John O'Brennan at National University of Ireland, Maynooth.


The Irish economy has made steady gains since 2011 under the Fine Gael-Labor coalition government.


Following growth of 5.2 percent in 2014, Ireland remained the fastest growing economy of the European Union (EU) in 2015, with its gross domestic product (GDP) increasing by 6.9 percent last year, the highest rise in the EU ugg basse noir pas cher , according to the European Commission (EC), the EU's executive arm.


But despite the good news nationally, support for the incumbent government may not last through this election cycle, and Fianna Fail may gain back some of the support they lost in the previous election. There is dissatisfaction with how the budget is being allocated, and many have not seen the effects of growth. Despite campaign promises by incumbent Fine Gael (United Ireland Party) to "Keep the Recovery Going", the public remains skeptical.


"The electorate may want stable growth ugg haute noir , but they are not adverse to a change in leadership. They may feel economic exclusion but not political exclusion," observed Dr. Adrian Kavanagh, a researcher on the geography of elections.


This dissatisfaction will significantly affect the minority partner in the incumbent coalition government.


"The minority party consistently bears the brunt of dissatisfaction with policy decisions," said Kavanagh
