Ireland Will Approve The Lisbon Treaty

Ireland will hold a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty by the end of October 2009. The EU leaders gave further guarantees regarding the three main areas of concern for Irish voters: abortion, fiscal policy and neutrality. Moreover, Ireland will retain its commissioner, with the EU dropping plans to trim down the size of the Commission.

Assessment:
This concessions, combined with the grim economic outlook facing Ireland, are bound to push Irish voters into a significant shift towards a “Yes” vote, ending the institutional deadlock that has paralyzed the EU.
