MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The need to devolve powers from the British parliament to Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and London, as well as to carry out constitutional reforms, proves to be crucial and overwhelming following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, the 4 Freedoms Party (UK EPP) leader, Dirk Hazell, told Sputnik on Monday.
"Following the referendum, the case for constitutional reform and regional devolution is both urgent and overwhelming," Hazell said.
According to the final results of the June referendum, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
Hazell stated that a swift resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron can only be beneficial for the United Kingdom and its allies in coming to consensus following the vote to leave the European Union.
"David Cameron has taken the UK to its greatest challenge in the modern era: in healing divisions, his prompt removal can only help the UK and our allies," Hazell said.
Cameron announced his resignation anticipated this fall after his campaign to keep the United Kingdom a member of the European Union lost in a June 23 referendum, as 52 percent of people supported Brexit.
