The Democrats (SDS) filed a motion to call a consultative referendum on the amendments to the RTV Slovenija act that the party submitted itself on Friday.
The motion will delay the final decision on the amendments as parliament cannot vote on the referendum motion in less than 30 days. This also means that a rival bill put forward by the emerging coalition led by the Freedom Movement will have to wait until the SDS-sponsored bill is off the agenda. The SDS’s proposal is to make the licence fee for the public broadcaster voluntary with the citizens deciding how much they want to pay.
