The rules of the organization of the referendum
For the organization of a nationwide referendum is required to hold a meeting of the initial subgroups of no less than 100 people, more than half of subjects of the Russian Federation (i.e. at least 43). The electoral Commission, which received the first application for registration of a subgroup, shall send to the CEC the wording of the proposed question to check for compliance with the requirements of the law.
