U.K. Prime Minister, David Cameron won a parliamentary vote by the House of Commons, who rejected a call of a national referendum on Britain's membership in the European Union, where this motion was expected to fail, especially after the act from the leadership of the Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labor parties who ordered members to vote against this call.

The parliament voted by 483 votes against and 111 votes with the national referendum; however, 81 members of Cameron's Conservative party voted in favor of holding a referendum, as the BBC reported.
