The Popular Initiative System (Switzerland)

Other

All initiatives that gather 100,000 signatures in 12 (maybe) 18 months go to a public vote and can then be introduced as a new law. This is something that’s used in Switzerland and they are a very happy country.

We at least have a system where it has to be discussed in parliament if a certain amount of signatures are reached.

So 1 person in approximately 90. Not exactly a majority so not really very democratic.

I never knew this! I'm not quite sure how I feel about it though.

That's a terrible idea, but Switzerland is a great country so they can handle it. Others.. not so much.

People make dumb petitions of everything these days and I'm glad they go unsuccessful.
