 More than 1.5 million people signed petition demanding second UK-EU Referendum

More than 1.5 million people signed a petition demanding a new referendum of the United Kingdom's membership in the European Union.

Censor.NET reports citing the UK Parliament's website.

"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," the petition reads.

According to the norms, the Parliament considers all petitions that get more than 100,000 signatures for a debate.

Earlier, the UK voted to leave the EU by 52% to 48%. Leave won the majority of votes in England and Wales, while every council in Scotland saw Remain majorities. London, Scotland and Northern Ireland voted for remaining within the EU, while the rest of the United Kingdom said their 'no' to the Union.
