Results of the referendum on the Saar Statute (23 October 1955)

The Paris Accords of 23 October 1954 provided, in particular, for a European statute for the Saar under the auspices of the Western European Union (WEU). However, at a referendum held on 23 October 1955, the people of the Saar voted against this European statute, and instead opted for the return of the Saar to the Federal Republic of Germany from 1 January 1957.
