Somalilandsun- Following The result on Thursday which saw 52 percent of voters, 17,410,742 people, back a British exit of the EU, on a turnout of 72 percent, over 2.5m people have petitioned for a second referendum.
The petitioners who are increasing by the minute want a second referendum by stating that
“We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum”
Most of those who signed were based in areas where support for staying in the EU was strongest, most especially London, the website indicated.
Prime Minister David Cameron, who said on Friday he would resign after leading the failed campaign to keep Britain in the EU, had said there would be no second referendum.
According to rules the UK Parliament has to consider a debate on any petition posted on its website that attracts more than 100,000 signatures.
