Bulgaria's Local Elections, Referendum to Be Held October 25
Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev has set October 25 as the date for both local elections and a referendum on remote electronic voting.
With a decree, he has confirmed the holding of a national poll that was initially designed (and put forward by him) to ask citizens on voting rules but that unexpectedly met strong resistance in Parliament, with two of the three questions being turned down.
The referendum will now consist only of the following questions: "Do you support that remote electronic voting is also enabled when holding elections and referendums?"
The two questions rejected by lawmakers were about the introduction of a majority element in the voting system and whether to make it compulsory to cast a ballot.
