Commenting ahead of the vote on Tuesday 15 January in the UK parliament on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, the co-chairs of the European Green Party Reinhard Bütikofer and Monica Frassoni said:
“The European Green Party is united in its conviction that the UK’s EU membership makes Europe stronger and more relevant in the world. We are also convinced that the people of Britain should be consulted with a ‘People’s Vote' to see if they agree with the deal negotiated by Theresa May.
“There is too much at stake for both Europe and the UK to cut the cord that has kept us together for the past 45 years without asking the people.”
