The Dutch Electoral Council has published on its official website the final results of the referendum on the EU-Ukrainse association agreement.

Some 61 per cent of voters (2,509,395 people) said No, 38.21 per cent (1,574,874 people) said Yes, while about 32,000 (0.79 per cent) put the empty ballots into the box.

There were 0.92 per cent (38,000) ballots which were invalidated.

The turnout was 32.38 per cent, which is above the required minimum of 30 per cent.

The advisory referendum is thus declared valid, therefore the Dutch government should take it into account.
