Irish EU treaty "Yes" confirmed: Reuters calculation

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish voters have approved the European Union’s Lisbon reform treaty and victory for its opponents is now a statistical impossibility, Reuters calculations showed Saturday.

Results show the “Yes” camp with a lead of 519,089 votes, which is greater than the total number of voters in those constituencies that have yet to declare results.

Six constituencies, with a total of 495,702 registered voters, have yet to announce results, according to the Web site of the referendum’s returning officer.
