PR dla Zagranicy
Half of Poles are in favour of a referendum proposed by Polish President Andrzej Duda on potential changes to the country’s constitution, a new poll has found.
The survey by pollster CBOS conducted in June also found that 47 percent of respondents were opposed to changes in the constitution, while 37 percent said they supported such a move.
Polish President Andrzej Duda has suggested 11 November 2018 as the date for a referendum on changes to the country's constitution.
In early May, Duda said: “Poles have a right to say whether the constitution, which has been in force for 20 years, should be changed.”
He added that Poles themselves should be able to decide on the directions of the country's development. “Which civil rights, which freedoms must be more strongly highlighted,” he said. (rg/pk)
