Estonians no longer want to be in the EU. Estonia has started collecting signatures for a petition calling for a referendum on the country leaving the EU. The initiator is the Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE).
The results of the 2003 referendum on Estonia's accession to the European Union should be annulled, because, at that time, less than half of the country's citizens supported Estonia's integration into the EU and, therefore, a new referendum must be held now.
In this referendum, people must decide whether Estonia should continue to be in the EU or restore its sovereignty to such a state as of 1 May 2004.
Because of the EU membership, Estonian people have limited right to make decisions independently.
The article discusses a proposal created in the The Citizen Initiative Portal rahvaalgatus.ee. The portal enables everyone to write proposals, hold discussions, compose and send digitally signed collective addresses to the Estonian Parliament.
The appeal in question has received 1656 signatures and has been sent to the Parliament to process it. Given this very low number, at this point there are no plans to have a referendum in Estonia on this matter.
