Petition for Сonstitutional rights. There are No preliminary and electronic elections!
The most important law of our country is the Constitution. All other laws passed by the Parliament/Riigikogu must comply with the principles expressed in the Constitution. The constitution is concrete and absolute. Arbitrary interpretations and distortions of the Constitution, for whatever purpose and by whomever, cannot serve the interests of the Estonian people.
Parliament/Riigikogu is the most important representative body of the people in the state, holding legislative power.
The laws passed by the Parliament/Riigikogu regulate social relations for all of us. Public order, which operates in accordance with laws passed by the Parliament/Riigikogu, either supports or hinders the development of the state as a whole. That is why it is extremely important that the procedures for electing members of the Parliament/Riigikogu are clearly and unambiguously defined.
This is such an important issue, which is set out with the utmost precision in the Constitution of the Republic of Estonia. Article 60 of the Constitution says the following, that the members of the Parliament/Riigikogu are elected in free elections on the basis of the principle of proportionality.
Elections are universal, unified and direct. Voting is carried out in secret.
The timing of the elections is also determined very specifically.
Regular elections to the Parliament/Riigikogu are held on the first Sunday of March in the fourth year following the previous election year.
There is nothing in the Constitution about primary or electronic elections. As many people in the IT industry have bluntly stated, the current electoral procedures, which violate the Constitution, can be used to manipulate those who have access to information systems. As a result of manipulations, persons whose personal ambitions and political views do not serve the interests of the Estonian people and do not protect the national goals enshrined in the Constitution can get into our legislative assembly. In order to avoid such a possible situation and directly prevent the manipulation of votes, we must follow specific electoral procedures, which are precisely fixed in the Constitution.
Regular elections to the Parliament/Riigikogu are held on the first Sunday of March in the fourth year after the previous Parliament/Riigikogu election year. There are No preliminary and electronic elections!
The people's movement "KOOS/TOGETHER" and "Eesti Patriotide Erakond KOOS“ (Party of Patriots in Estonia Together) strongly oppose the arbitrary change of the Constitution of the Republic of Estonia by the political elite of the state and call on all residents of Estonia to join the petition to ensure the procedure for electing members of the Riigikogu enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Estonia.
We call on all residents of Estonia to express their disagreement with the arbitrary interpretation of the constitutional order and sign the petition for the preservation of the constitutional rule of law in the country.
