Petition Summary

The petitioner states that the referendum relating to the continuation of membership of the European Union is unconstitutional. He affirms that citizenship of the European Union is a consequence of accession of any Member State to the European Union, and citizenship matters, therefore, lie within the jurisdiction of the institutions of the European Union. The petitioner asks the Parliament to refer all matters pertaining to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union to the Commission, and to the Court of Justice of the European Union, in accordance with the provisions of the treaty. He further asks Parliament to give effect to his petition and order the United Kingdom to facilitate a further referendum under the auspices of the European Union exclusively.
