Socialist Leader Stanishev Proposes Referendum on Tax System

The leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, Sergei Stanishev, said he is in favour of holding a referendum on the country's tax system, the Bulgarian News Agency, BTA, reported.
Speaking at a party congress over the weekend, Stanishev said that instead of holding a referendum on the country's electoral system, the Socialist party could seek people's opinion on what he described as "more important issues" such as whether a progressive tax rate should be introduced, or the non-payment or delay of social security contributions criminalised.
In late January President Rossen Plevneliev said he would propose to parliament to call a national referendum on changes to the country's electoral legislation, asking voters the following three questions: Do you support electing part of the members of parliament through a majority vote? Do you support a compulsory vote in elections and national referenda? Do you support remote electronic voting in elections and referenda?
