Luxembourg premier to quit if EU constititution rejected
Updated: 2005-06-03 20:14

Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker said Friday he will step down if voters in his country rejected the European Union constitution in a July 10 referendum.

If the charter is rejected, Juncker told reporters that he would see no possibility ``to defend Luxembourg's interests in Europe.'' Luxembourg, with a population of around 400,000, has long been an ardent supporter of European integration, but polls suggest the vote could be close.
