The government of the Republic of Serbia will make an analysis of whether amendments to the Law on Expropriation are necessary and, if it is determined that the law needs to be changed, it will be done with a broad public debate involving the professional public, professional associations, business and civil society.
At the same session, the government proposed to the National Assembly amendments to the Law on Referendum and People's Initiative, in Articles 7, 20, 43 and 44. The mentioned articles refer to the verification of signatures, the representatives of the authorised proponent in the body for conducting the referendum and the deadline for re-calling the referendum.
The government by this proposal abolishes the fee for the verification of signatures and clearly enables the representatives of the authorised proponents to be part of the body for conducting the referendum. According to the proposal, it will not be possible to call a referendum on the same issue in less than four years. Also, the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia will not be able to make a decision different from the one confirmed in the referendum within four years.
The government of the Republic of Serbia apologises to the citizens, the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia and the President of the Republic of Serbia for sending a working version of the statement to all media during the preparation for the government session, due to a technical error.
