Sinn Fein hopes to capitalise on No stance on Euro Referendum

The main political parties have confirmed they intend playing a major role in the referendum on the European Reform Treaty.

While most parties will campaign for a YES vote, Sinn Fein will campaign for a NO vote.

The summer general election taught Sinn Fein that success in power sharing in the North does not automatically translate into electoral success in the south.

The party has also been hit with a number of resignations both at branch and local council level.

However that party has been quick to rethink its strategy and claims to have a clearer picture of where its going and how its going to get there.

Sinn Fein intends using its opposition to the Euro Reform Treaty to reinforce its position as a party of the left and help to consolidate its local council gains and Euro Election gains of 2004
