The European Union is to propose ending twice-yearly clock changes after a large-scale public survey, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Friday.

According to Juncker, more than 80 percent of EU citizens want to abolish daylight saving time and instead remain on the time used during summer instead, report CNN and the BBC.

At the moment, each EU member state puts clocks forward one hour on the last Sunday of March and back again on the last Sunday in October.
