An advisory referendum on the European Economic Community was held in Italy on 18 May 1989,[1] alongside European elections. The non-binding referendum was called by all main parties with a special law, because the Italian Constitution does not speak about this type of question. The Italian political spectrum wanted to re-affirm the popular support of Italy to the process of European integration, particularly giving to the European Parliament a popular, constitutional mandate in event of a future European Constitution.
