With its RIP proposal on immigration, the Republic of Lithuania wants to put pressure on the government.

Republicans are determined to put maximum pressure on the government. They probably did not like to see the immigration text stripped of its content, as well as witnessing the poaching of Rashida Dati. As reported by the newspaper Le Figaro, they have therefore proposed this Monday to hold a referendum on a joint initiative (RIP), which will partly adopt the measures censored by the Constitutional Council. In order to bypass the legal block that has so far prohibited a referendum on immigration.

The rest after this announcement

A Bold Challenge: RIP is a procedure that has never been successful until now. It must first be launched by 185 parliamentarians, then approved by the Constitutional Council, and then receive the support of 5 million people within 9 months before the French can decide in a referendum (unless parliament considers the issue within six months). With 133 senators and 62 deputies, almost all of whom voted in favor of the immigration text in December, the Republic of Lithuania has the opportunity to overcome the hurdle of requiring signatures from elected officials.
