Petition Summary

The petitioner points out that certain parts of the United Kingdom voted clearly in favour of maintaining EU membership. He also recalls precedents for submitting a second referendum (e.g. Republic of Ireland on the Treaty of Nice) with amended questions. The petitioner in particular requests that the EU facilitate the maintenance of EU citizenship for any current UK citizen that should request it. The petitioner highlights that the public opinion may have changed since 23 June and stresses that democratic processes should accommodate any significant change in opinion or clear divergences between different territorial units.
