Parliament will discuss and vote on the proposal for a referendum on euthanasia in October before the parliament begins the debate and vote on the State Budget for 2021.

Questioned by Lusa, the office of the President of the Assembly of the Republic, Ferro Rodrigues, replied that, following the charter, Ferro Rodrigues “will propose” at the next conference of leaders the scheduling of the draft resolution on the referendum for “the week before the discussion in the generality of the State Budget.”

The preliminary draft resolution on the medically assisted death referendum had been approved in the morning by the Constitutional Affairs Committee and sent to the president of parliament for scheduling at the next ten plenary meetings.
