EU LEADERS ARE due to meet tomorrow to hammer out the final details of the new EU treaty aimed at fixing the crisis in the eurozone.

Full details of what the treaty will contain will be disclosed later this week. However leaked initial drafts suggest that it will set out tough new economic rules for member nations and penalties for any country which fails to follow the rules.

This week Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said signing up to the new EU treaty is “absolutely in the national interest“. However criticism of the treaty has focused on whether or not it will lead to a loss of sovereignty for Ireland.

The Attorney General will make a decision on whether Ireland needs to hold a referendum on the treaty when the final text is available.

What do you think?

If Ireland holds a referendum on the EU treaty, how will you vote?

Poll Results:
