Refused request for registration
Title: British friends-stay with us in EU
Date of refusal: 21/03/2018
Language of the request: English

Subject-matter:
Brexit in 2016 was not a binding plebiscite, but only a public referendum in order for the British parliament to judge the opinion of the British populations at that moment.

Main objectives:
Our aim will be to create a platform which would enable all European citizens to take part in this initiative and to reach a majority of British Citizens (including those which live in the EU who were effectively disenfranchised in the original referendum) thereby giving to all British citizens an opportunity to voice their opinion.

Reason for refusal:
The proposed citizens' initiative falls manifestly outside the framework of the Commission's powers to submit a proposal for a legal act of the Union for the purpose of implementing the Treaties.
