Paragraph 37

During the expert visit, the Venice Commission and OSCE/ODIHR delegation was informed that a wide public information campaign was carried out that focused predominantly on the declared benefits of the majoritarian electoral system under draft law No. 60, in particular the proposed possibility of recalling elected MPs (see subsection IV.J on Recall). Several public discussions involving representatives of parliamentary and non-parliamentary parties, civil society and academia, were held within the Parliament. These were also mostly focused on the proposed shift to the majoritarian system. During the visit, the initiators of the reform cited numerous opinion polls, collected support signatures, and endorsements from different organisations, as indications of broad public support in favour of a change of the electoral system.
