Norway - Vote To Join The European Union

A referendum on joining the European Union was held in Norway in 1994. After a long period of heated debate, the "no" side won with 52.2 percent of the vote, on a turnout of 88.6 percent. Membership of what was then the European Community had previously been rejected in a 1972 referendum, and by French veto in 1962.
