Three-quarters Of Norwegians Against Joining EU
Almost three-quarters of the Norwegians don't want to join the EU, shows a poll conducted by Sentio for the newspapers Nationen and Klassekampen, quoted by the Norwegian edition of The Local.
The survey showed that only 16.8% of the respondents said they wanted Norway to join the EU, while 9.2% replied with “I don't know”.
The remaining 74% said they were against Norway joining the EU.
According to The Local, this is a historical high. For comparison, in a referendum on the matter, conducted 20 years ago, 52.2% of the citizens voted against the EU membership. In the 1972 vote on joining what was then the EEC, opponents won with 53.5% of the vote.
The last time there was a majority supporting EU membership, was in a 2005 EU membership public opinion poll.
