France rejects EU Constitution

Text size Aa Aa

France has voted against adopting the European Union’s proposed Constitution. Early exit polls indicate 55 percent of the population rejected the treaty which needs to adopted by all the EU’s 25 members.

Turnout is estimated to have been around 70 percent. A No vote could scupper the entire project – at the very least it is going to cause some major headaches and may even weaken France’s position in Europe.
