The European Union was thrown into a state of confusion and doubt following French and Dutch voters' respective rejections of the European Constitution, though the results of both referendums were hardly surprising. Without the new Constitution, its proponents argued, further EU enlargement would be difficult, if not impossible, to achieve; pessimistic observers went so far as to suggest that Europe might not be governable, or even viable, without the streamlined decision-making procedures foreseen in the Constitution. As a result, prospects for Turkey's full membership are also supposed to have faded, despite protestations to the contrary from the European Commission."
