Major European States’ 2017 Elections to Determine EU Future - Italian Lawmaker
ROME (Sputnik) – Italy and other EU states need to hold referendums on giving up the eurozone common currency, Vice President of Italy’s Chamber of Deputies Luigi Di Maio said Tuesday.

"We should not be taking the decision instead of the citizens, we should give them an opportunity to make the decision on the issue [of rejecting euro] themselves. I hope that it will be possible for the other states of the Eurozone to hold the referendum on euro’s further fate, too," Di Maio, one of the leaders of the Italy's opposition Five Star Movement (M5S) party, told RIA Novosti in an interview.

The lawmaker stressed that since joining the Eurozone, Italy lost some 25 percent of national wealth.

Di Maio added that Germany is the only state, which benefits from the existence of euro, whilst other EU members pretend not to be damaged by the common currency.
