Local news, 18.11.2019

The Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self Government (MPALSG), supported by the Government of Switzerland, has been working on reform of the Law on Referendum and Civic Initiatives. Earlier this year, MPALSG representatives visited Switzerland to learn more about good practices when it comes to referenda and civic initiatives. They have also benefited from analytical support in the course of writing the recent draft law. The draft law has been presented for public discussion. After integrating the public’s input, the MPALSG intends to put the draft law into the Parliamentary procedure.
