ZAGREB, May 31, 2018 – “The People Decide” civil initiative on Thursday revealed the number of signatures it had collected for the holding of a referendum on changes to the election system, announcing it would forward the signatures to parliament in about ten days.

For the first question, the civic association collected 397,024 signatures, association’s representative Zvonimir Troskot said at a news conference organised outside the national parliament on Thursday.

The first question refers to the general regulations of the election system, the optimum election threshold, etc, while the second question was: Do you want the Constitution to include article under which ethnic minority representatives decide on all issues from the jurisdiction on the national parliament, except on confidence vote in government and the state budget?

The signature collection campaign started on May 13 and ended on May 27.

At least 10% of the electorate or 374,740 voters have to sign a petition for a referendum for it to be called.

Troskot on Thursday dismissed accusations that the association continued to collect signatures after the deadline expired.
