Lithuania Sticks to 300,000 Signatures Rule for Referendums
The initiative aimed to change Article 9 and Article 147 of the Lithuanian Constitution, which govern the requirements for initiating referendums. It sought to state that a referendum can be announced if demanded by no less than 300,000 citizens with the right to vote. This change would have significantly lowered the threshold for citizens to propose referendums in Lithuania to 50,000.
However, this initiative did not garner sufficient support, and as a result, the status quo of requiring 300,000 signatures for referendums in Lithuania remains unchanged.
