“No more referendum!” Slovak PM Fico warns EU leaders

I am asking EU leaders to stop with adventures like the British and Italian referendums (…) on domestic issues which pose a threat to the EU,” said Fico, whose country handed over the rotating six-month EU presidency to Malta on January 1, Reuters reported.

Fico highlighted the particular risk of political instability in Italy, which saw its prime minister, Matteo Renzi, resign after a referendum defeat, and now could face a banking crisis. “Britain is not a eurozone country, Italy has a huge impact on the banking sector, the euro,” Fico said.
