It should not be too easy to collect signatures, so you can quickly make a batch up to Parliament.
Therefore introduces the Economy and the ministry of the Interior a new portal for the collection of vælgererklæringer.
the Tightening comes after Klaus Riskær Pedersen in record time, collected the signatures of enough to achieve the establishment in the upcoming general election.
He let namely people sign two times in quick succession, even though the rules dictate that you must wait seven days. Klaus Riskær Pedersen managed to receive warnings from the ministry for its practice. Like other smaller parties have expressed dissatisfaction.
The seven-day period of reflection is maintained in the new system.
- We can't live with, to parties with creative methods take a short cut to a place on the ballot and thus potentially a seat in the Danish Parliament. Of course there should be space for new parties, but there must only be space for the parties, who are working honestly and fairly. With this agreement we get a future-proof system that is both more user friendly and better protected against cheating, said finance and economy minister Simon Emil Ammitzbøll-Beetle in a press release with a thinly-disguised reference to Klaus Riskær Pedersen's method.
- I am very pleased that all political parties support the agreement. It is important, that it is a fair system, where it's neither too easy or too difficult to be opstillingsberettiget. I think we have found a good balance.
the Ministry says that the new portal must be user friendly and easily give an overview of how far the new parties are of the establishment.
the Portal will be put into operation as soon as possible, the promise of the ministry, without, however, putting a deadline on the project, which is still not fully developed.
