Group of citizens challenge Slovak "yes" vote on EU constitution

Wed 13 Jul 05, 07:53    RSI

A group of 13 citizens today turned to the Constitutional Court with a protest against the recent ratification of the EU constitution by Slovak parliament, a procedure which they believe has violated their right to take part in public affairs administration. According to the coordinator of the Initiative Against the EU Constitution, the Slovak referendum of May 2003, in which the voters said "yes" to the country's EU accession, is not enough. The initiators have asked the Constitutional Court to issue a preliminary injunction allowing President Ivan Gasparovic to sign the EU constitution only after the Constitutional Court's verdict. They have also asked Gasparovic to delay his ratification signature.
