LONDON, June 24. /TASS/. Most Britons - 52% - voted at the historic referendum on Thursday to stay in the European Union against 48% to leave, YouGov's poll conducted for the Sky News TV channel said.
The poll was based on responses from a pre-selected group of people. "Based on these results we expect the United Kingdom to continue as a member of the European Union," Joe Twyman, YouGov's head of political and social research, said.
The UK’s sterling rose to a record high level for 2016 - $1.4987 from $1.487 after the results of the poll were announced.
The official results collected from 382 local counting areas will be received throughout the night and the final outcome is expected at around 0600 GMT.
Some 46.5 million Britons eligible to take part in the referendum were offered to answer the question: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"
This is the third nationwide plebiscite in the country’s history. In 1975, the British voters backed the UK’s membership in the European Economic Community (EEC). In 2011, a vote was held on changing the country’s voting system.
