Resolution #68: Ballot initiatives (Official French version)

A government of the Conservative Party of Québec will create a referendum mechanism that can be triggered when an official petition of the National Assembly reaches 100,000 signatures of registered voters. The petition must be sponsored either by a member of the National Assembly or by the Citizen’s Protector.

A period of 20 years will be prescribed for questions of a constitutional nature, while those on any other topic will not be able to be the subject of a referendum of popular initiative before a 5-year period has elapsed.
