Outcome of the European Council of 28 June 2016 and the informal meeting of 27 Heads of State or Government on 29 June 2016

01-07-2016

The 28 June 2016 European Council was described by its President, Donald Tusk, as ‘very much a British European Council'. The result of the UK referendum held on 23 June 2016 – in which 51.9% of the 71.8% of the electorate who voted opted for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union – dominated the agenda. The meeting was thus split into two sessions. On 28 June, EU leaders from all 28 Member States discussed migration, jobs, growth and competitiveness and external relations, before hearing an account from the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, on the situation in the United Kingdom after the outcome of the referendum, followed by a first exchange of views. The next day, on 29 June, the Heads of State or Government of 27 Member States, meeting without Mr Cameron, discussed the political and practical implications of the UK vote, as well as the future of the European Union with 27 Member States.
