Voting Legislation: Changes to Constitution to Bring New Electoral System

Ljubljana, 13 July - The parliament on Thursday evening reached the necessary two-thirds majority (68:13, 81 present) to start a procedure to change Article 80 of the Constitution, thus writing down the basics of the improved proportional representation in the Constitution, as was proposed by a group of 28 MPs (ZLSD, LDS, DeSUS, and two minority representatives).
Specific changes to the Constitution will be drafted by the commission, which will take into account several positions on the issue. Once the Constitution is changed, a bill on the general elections based on improved proportional representation will be drafted as well.
