The Guardian quoted Dr. Aaron Matta, senior researcher in the Rule of Law program, about the Dutch referendum of a key EU pact with Ukraine. A Dutch no to the two-year-old treaty with Kiev could pose a headache for the European Union.
If there is a no vote, the Dutch government “will have to save face … having been placed in an awkward situation. The Netherlands will perhaps have to find some way of opting out [of specific provisions] of the agreement.”
