The wording of a referendum question on foreigner voting rights was presented on Monday, along with three other questions to be put to a vote next year. The questions were presented by a parliamentary commission dedicated to constitutional reform and will form the basis of the draft law. However, until the law is passed in parliament, changes to the text are still possible. The referendum questions will be asked in French, German and Luxembourgish; however, on Monday only the French version was publicly available on chamber.lu
The referendum will cover four topics – lowering the voting age to 16, foreigner voting rights, limiting political mandates to a period of ten years and state contributions to affiliated faith groups. The state has conventions with a number of different religious communities in the Grand Duchy, also including provisions for financial support.
