United Kingdom to leave EU


The United Kingdom voted for leaving the European Union (EU) in a referendum on June 23. With 51.9% of the British voters in favour of the “Leave”-campaign which became widely known under the name “Brexit”, the UK government is now tasked with entering lengthy negotiations with the EU on the process of withdrawal and future mutual relationships.

After announcing his resignation on the morning following the vote, the incumbent British Prime Minister, David Cameron, passed the responsibility for formally starting the withdrawal process to his successor in office, who will be determined until October. Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty stipulates the scenario for a member state’s disintegration from the EU. Accordingly, the government of the state willing to leave needs to notify the European Council of its intention and in return a qualified majority of the Council (without the requesting member state) needs to mandate the European Commission with the initiation of negotiations on an agreement for the future framework under which the relationship between the leaving member state and the European Union will be concluded. more...
