Brexit: Luxembourg says UK could nominate MEPs to facilitate new Brexit vote

GENEVA, Feb 26 (Reuters) - The European Union could help Britain hold a second Brexit referendum by allowing it to nominate members of the European Parliament (MEPs) for a very short period, Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said on Tuesday.

Asselborn told Reuters that any second referendum was likely to push the timetable back by six months or more, and the European Parliament’s elections in May were a problem but did not need to be a stumbling block. (Reporting by Tom Miles)
