Paragraph 17

Article 6 restricts the possibility of holding referendums that cannot be organised in times of state of emergency, they cannot coincide with elections, and only a single question is submitted to the vote. These restrictions can be accepted but it might restrict the possibility of holding a referendum together with other elections or to let decide the people on more issues on the same day. This might lead to a repetition of elections and referenda that – indifferently from the superfluous and high costs – keeps the political life overheated because of the continuous campaigns.
