An independence referendum was held in French Algeria on 1 July 1962.[1] It followed French approval of the Évian Accords in an April referendum. The results in Algeria were 99.72% in favour and just 0.28% against. Voter turnout was 91.88%. As a result of the vote in favour, France declared Algeria to be independent on 3 July.

When Algeria ceased being part of France it also ceased being part of the European Communities.
