Two thirds of Germans want some power back from EU

Independent, UK

A new poll shows nearly two-thirds of Germans want their government to reclaim some powers from the European Union after the UK voted to leave.

The survey by Emnid for the N24 news channel found 62 per cent of the country’s citizens believe it should reclaim some of its powers, although the overwhelming majority are still in favor of membership.

Three-quarters of those surveyed said they wanted to continue being members of the union - but like Britain. this figure disguises a generational gap.

Some 90 per cent of under 30s said Germany’s membership of the union was positive - compared to just over two-thirds of respondents aged 50 or over.
