Council of Europe Success

A resolution calling for stronger guidelines on the conducting of referendums, based on a report produced by Dame Cheryl, has received overwhelming support at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

113 participants voted in favour of the set of principles, and only 7 against. As a consequence of this result, a revision will be made to the 2007 Code of Good Practise on Referendums.
