BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Parliament member Beatrix von Storch of the eurosceptic German AfD party called on Friday for the resignation of the heads of the European Commission and the European Parliament after Britain voted to leave the European Union.

The European Commission is headed by Luxemburg's Jean-Claude Juncker and the European Parliament by German Martin Schulz.

"June 23 is a historic day. It is Independence Day for Great Britain. The people were asked - and have decided. The European Union has failed as a political union. Juncker and Schulz are to answer for this. They must resign."
