They support binding referenda as opposed to the “elective dictatorship” known as representative democracy.
Pretty stupid idea. I am strongly against binding referenda, but if they really think people want them, why don’t they get 300,000 signatures for an indicative referendum on having binding referenda. Or set up their own party.
On a practical level, it is impossible to have binding referenda without a written constitution. I support a written constitution incidentally, and would view a constitution and significant amendments to it as something that should be done by referendum. But not day to day law making.Tags: direct democracy
