#STOPGAG FOR THE DIRECT ELECTION OF THE HEAD OF CHELYABINSK
Preparing to collect signatures
WANT TO CHOOSE THE MAYOR, ACT NOW!
"... and the minority must obey the majority," Vladimir Putin
Today, again , filed documents for registration of our law-making initiative "For the return of direct elections of the mayor of Chelyabinsk" in the city Council, if you consider and register (required for 3 days), you will need to collect 2 months and not less than 1% of the number of residents eligible to vote the signatures of the residents in one area should not exceed 15% of the total number of signatories.
Total 8 565 signatures. Then the question needs to be examined by MPs.
Previously, our initiative was rejected on formal grounds https://m.vk.com/wall198130427_302 (in addition to the residents of Chelyabinsk in the Protocol signed people registered in the city of Kopeysk).
I am sure we will cope : [id90494076|Vasily Moskovets], [id24725731|Andrey Kostenko], [id181899929|Andrei Telefon], [id266201728|Vyacheslav Ivanovich Kislitsyn], [id309084288|Georgy Nevsky], [id225688750|Irina Gladysheva]... and residents will support us!
To wait for something from someone is pointless, we have to act now. Election time is a good time when the government is forced to listen to the people.
The recent offer of the Deputy from the Communist party about the return of direct mayoral elections, was sent to the deputies of the city Duma for revision (read rejected long course he was going, I asked him to do it in February https://m.vk.com/wall198130427_315), while, according to media reports, "all the members agreed that the request for this long overdue and in the information field, and in the public environment." The ACTING Governor, too slow to use its right of legislative initiative (response to our appeal here: https://vk.com/ya.sherbakov?w=wall198130427_353).
So we have to act we, the people. Tools we don't have much right legislative initiatives in the SSA region, we don't have (this Charter), the survey can only be initiated by the authorities, are silent about the referendum (the application was filed "Open Russia") remains a legislative initiative in accordance with the Charter of the city.
Let's try to help the Chelyabinsk municipal Duma to withdraw the bill by the SOA and the return of direct elections of the mayor, especially, in their own words, this change is overdue.
