Interior Minister Haris Kastanidis on Thursday unveiled the institutional initiatives he is considering.
The draft law introducing the referendum option for political and social issues, except fiscal issues which are constitutionally excluded, will be ready by the end of July. “The draft law’s goal is to improve the quality of democracy,” the minister stressed.
Other draft laws expected to be introduced soon concern the funding of political parties, as well as, auditing and election campaign expenditures. The issue of the “source of wealth declarations” submitted by political figures will also be addressed, while the new election law will be considered at a later time.
Kastanidis also said that the reduction of the number of MPs is an issue that could be settled through a referendum.
