Ireland’s Curran Believes Bailout Vote Will Pass on Dec. 15

Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) -- A parliamentary vote on Dec. 15 on Ireland’s 85 billion-euro ($112 billion) international aid package will pass, even without support from the opposition, John Curran, a government minister and spokesman, said.

“I do believe that the government will have the numbers to pass this motion without the support of the opposition,” Curran said in a statement today.

Still, he said that Fine Gael, the country’s main opposition party, “must recognize that a resounding” parliamentary vote in support of the bailout “would send a loud and clear message to the international community of Ireland’s resolve to battle our way back to economic stability and growth.”
