Democracy [diˈmäkrəsē] noun ( pl. -cies) | Definition: a system of government by the whole population
Origin: from Greek, dēmos ‘the people’ + kratia ‘power, rule.’
A popular referendum is a type of a referendum that provides a means by which a petition signed by a certain minimum number of registered voters can force a public vote on an existing statute, constitutional amendment, charter amendment or ordinance, or, in its minimal form, to simply oblige the executive or legislative bodies to consider the subject by submitting it to the order of the day.
A popular referendum would be the most democratic way to instigate a legitimate switch from representative to direct democracy. Once the right to call popular referendum becomes available in your country, once a template for a direct democratic constitution has been drafted, once the online direct democracy platform is ready, you will have all the tools necessary to peacefully implement a switch to direct democracy.
When the time comes, we will invite you to sign a petition to call for a popular referendum on direct democracy in your country.
