Irish Green Party vote not enough to support Lisbon EU treaty

Irish Green Party are in government supporting this, I believe, but members are free to campaign on either side...a strong Europe is one thing, a neo-liberal one quite another.

The EU Green Parties are generally quite strongly pro a stronger EU even if taken with a dose of market mechanism...nice to see that the vote has not locked Irish Green Party members into Lisbon support.



The Irish Green Party (Comhaontas Glas) has not voted to support the Lisbon Treaty by the required two thirds majority. This leaves members free to campaign for a Yes or a No vote in the forthcoming referendum in the Irish Republic.
