“expected to approve a new electoral pact..”

It’s mentioned as somewhat of an aside in Frank Millar’s Irish Times report, but it’ll be worth watching to see just what kind of electoral pact emerges.

Although some other recent polls have given the Conservatives a double-digit lead, yesterday’s findings – a week before the Glenrothes by-election in Scotland – will revive speculation about a possible hung parliament after the next general election. That will also spark interest in Northern Ireland, where the Ulster Unionist Party executive is next week expected to approve a new electoral pact with Mr Cameron.
