Public could get to set the agenda


Diko MP Christiana Erotokritou is submitting a bill aimed at putting forth popular initiatives, it emerged on Tuesday.

It outlines that if citizens manage to gather 5,000 signatures to support a motion, it will be submitted to parliament.

The initiative falls under participatory democracy ideals, that aims to engage citizens with legislative action.

The matter will be discussed during this week’s House legal affairs committee, and seeks to greenlight the public in setting the agenda for the matters that eventually become law.
