RERI and WWF say restoring the law is not the answer

, News

The Regulatory Institute for Renewable Energy and the Environment (RERI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) informed the public that the Serbian Constitution stipulates that in case the president refuses to sign a law, it is returned to the Assembly for a new decision.

If the National Assembly decides to vote again on the same text of the law that the president returned for decision, and if the deputies adopt it again, the president is obliged to sign it, the two non-governmental organizations announced.

“Having in mind the above provisions of the Constitution, RERI and WWF point out that the eventual non-signing of the unconstitutional Law on Waters by the President does not represent the end of the struggle of citizens against its adoption”, the organizations said.

The citizens of Serbia are invited to sign the petition of RERI and WWF against the adoption of the Law on Waters, which has so far been signed by more than 68.00 citizens and has been supported by a large number of organizations and individuals.

The initiators of the petition refuse to accept the principle according to which “behind closed doors and by” direct agreement “laws are written by orders or in the interest of certain groups, in agreement with the people who are in power at that time”.
