MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
“I hope that the Commission and [European Commission President] Mr. Junker realize that the way they work is running straight in the wall. So it is up to them to see the sign on the wall,” Franz Obermayr said.
“We will not start in Austria a campaign Leave EU, this is wrong. Our position is to work in the system, and correct and improve the situation, I would say the exit is the last resort. We believe that a lot of things can be changed,” Obermayr said.
He also noted that the Austrian voice, as well as the voices of other member states should become louder in the European Union after the vote.
“We expect our government now to have more back to say no if we don’t like things. We expect now the decisions are rethought,” Obermayr said.
