DUP will campaign to leave the EU

The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will be campaigning to leave the EU.

Northern Ireland First Minister, Arlene Foster MLA, said:
The Democratic Unionist Party has always been Eurosceptic in its outlook.  At every stage in this European negotiation process we had hoped to see a fundamental change to our relationship with Europe. In our view we see nothing in this deal that changes our outlook.  Therefore we will on balance recommend a vote to leave the EU.
With eight MPs at Westminster and 38 MLAs at Stormont, the DUP will play an important part - along with UKIP - in the EU referendum campaign in Northern Ireland where Sinn Féin have already pledged to campaign hard to keep us in.
