60% of Britons want to retain their citizenship in the EU after Brexit. These are the results of a survey of the London School of Economics, reports The Guardian.
Six out of ten UK citizens stand in favor the preservation of EU citizenship, including the right to work, study and travel across the EU.
"Support for the preservation of rights is particularly strong among 18-24-year-olds, 85% of whom want to retain their citizenship of the EU. About 80% of people living in London also want to retain the same rights, "the publication notes.
More than two thousand British citizens took part in the survey.
We recall that on March 29, Theresa May signed a letter, which officially begins the procedure for the UK's withdrawal from the EU named Brexit. The referendum on the withdrawal of Britain from the EU was held on June 23, 2016. More than half of the British voters gave their votes for the withdrawal from the European Union.
