10,000 signatures collected for referendum on granting citizenship to all non-citizens in Latvia
Gathering signatures will continue until Friday, and the signatures that will have been collected by then will be handed over to the Central Election Commission on August 30.
Tolmacovs said that 10% to 15% of those signing under the petition were Latvians.
Under the current procedure for initiation of referendums, if 10,000 signatures, verified by a notary public, are collected, the Central Election Commission has to organize the second round of the signature drive where 10% of voters' signatures has to be collected for staging a referendum.
