Half of Luxembourgers would support a move for foreign nationals to vote in national elections, the final segment of the Politmonitor survey suggests. The poll tests the waters ahead of the 2015 referendum, scheduled for June 7, in particular in relation to foreign resident voting rights, capping ministerial posts to 10 years and religious subsidies. On foreigner voting rights, 47 percent of Luxembourgers who responded to the survey said they would support a move allowing non-Luxembourg nationals the right to vote in legislative elections. They pledged their support provided that to be eligible, voters had resided within the country for at least 10 years and had previously participated in European elections in Luxembourg. Of the total group polled, nearly two thirds (62 percent) support this move, as did 80 percent of foreign residents.
The majority of respondents said it was not for the state to subsidise the salaries and pensions of ministers of recognised religions in Luxembourg.
Among Luxembourg nationals who responded, 58 percent said the state should not subsidise religions.
More than half of respondents (59 percent) said they would support a 10-year cap on ministerial posts. Among Luxembourgers, 55 percent supported the limit.
Altogether, three quarters of respondents said they supported the use of referendums in Luxembourg.
