Why go to vote on Sunday? came in media and public discussions on the question of whether the referendum according to previous publications, it should be necessary.

order to effect a full disclosure, it needs an additional Lever, namely, how the water table suggested that the invalidity of undisclosed ingredients. Whether this requirement may well be in breach of the fundamental law, we do not know. The Senate argued in the voting booklet. The country's Constitutional Court has this not been established. And it's not the first time that the Senate, with its inadmissibility claim beside it. " As far as the currently dominant issues in the public opinion the image. The further consequences of privatization of state infrastructure go much further than just the prices shamelessly lifted be.
