Read on to find out what petitions are making waves in Luxembourg
A referendum on Ceta, cameras for police officers and improved forms for tax returns are among the issues to recently be raised in petitions in Luxembourg.
The online portal last week saw the addition of eight new petitions which are now open for signature.
Among them is petition 797 calling for all police officers in Luxembourg to be equipped with cameras to better “ensure their safety” and provide evidence for interventions.
Petition 787 calls for a referendum on the signing of the Canadian Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement known as Ceta.
Its author references the spring 2016 politmonitor survey, which found that out of 1,024 residents polled, 57% asserted signing the treaty would be disadvantageous for Luxembourg.
Petition 792 calls for the Luxembourg government to push to end accession negotiations between Turkey and the EU, and to send a strong message to the Turkish government about recent diplomatic escalations.
Improving the paperwork for submitting tax returns is the goal of petition 793, to make the forms more ergonomic and purely electronic.
An older petition which is still active has now reached the 4,500 signature threshold for being discussed in parliament. At the time of publishing, petition 785, calling to ban French being taught in Luxembourg crèches and in cycle 2.1, had garnered 4,677 signatures.
Petitions can be signed by any registered resident of Luxembourg provided they are aged 15 or above.
