Postal voting draft to be discussed by Gov’t this week

Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi said yesterday that a draft law allowing Romanians abroad to vote by post will most likely be discussed by the government this week, after which it will be sent to Parliament. Baconschi, who was in charge of developing the draft, said Romanians abroad are interested in postal voting and that “it’s normal that their voice should be heard in Romania’s political destiny.” He also voiced wish that the entire political class agreed to this project, as the right to vote “is a constitutional right valid in any functional democracy.” His comments came before the official launch of a special website on postal voting, an event scheduled to be held yesterday afternoon. When asked to comment on the launch, Baconschi replied that the website promotes a draft law that so far was approved by all bodies that analysed it.
