IRES poll: 77pct of Romanian citizens would vote Stay in EU

77 per cent of the Romanian citizens would vote for Romania to remain in the European Union, if a referendum on this topic took place, says an IRES poll carried in 13 – 15 July and sent to Agerpres.

According to data by pollster IRES, 14pct of the interviewees would vote against, 6pct would never go to vote, whilst 2pct would be undecided in their option.

On the other hand, the poll says that 74pct of the ones interviewed believe that Romania is heading in the wrong direction, and 65pct say that the leaving by Great Britain from the EU will rather have a negative outcome for our country.

The canvass also reveals that the Romanians do not believe in Brexit, therefore 54pct of the subjects said that the UK will not leave the EU despite the results of the 23 June referendum there, while 39pct say the contrary.

Seven out of ten persons who have heard about Brexit deem that Romania should speed up its integration process into the EU, while only 16pct believe that this process should be slowed down, says the IRES data.

69pct of the participants in the IRES poll say that Romania has much to gain from its EU integration.

The survey was carried on 1,160 persons of 18 years old and more, at national level, with a maximum tolerated margin (MPE) of plus/ minus 2.9pct.
