On this day
France voted “Yes.”
In 1992, France voted in favor of the Maastricht treaty. The treaty was signed by other European countries such as the UK, Spain, Italy, and more – it effectively helped to form the original alliance that would become the European Union. As we all know by now, the UK made waves in 2016 by becoming the first to vote “out” of the Union via Brexit.
