(en) Anarkismo.net, Brazil, participatory democracy and political reform by Bruno Lima Rocha (pt) [machine translation]

If the possibility of processing of project law of popular initiative to become approved and may affect all levels of legislation, then we have a little concrete progress in actually existing democracy ---- Political reform, after more than a decade and a half zigzagging corridors of the lower house will vote. On 9 and 10 April the deputies will be on the floor to make it less like; vote on the rules of professional race in politics. ---- Possibly be doubly upset as they need to stand up and publicly. A few weeks ago, I participated in a debate in the presence of the rapporteur, congressman Henrique Fontana (PT / RS) and among all proposals, one that bypasses the central controversy draws more attention.

It is the possibility that, by collecting electronic signatures, a design law (PL) originating from the common citizen can transact in Congress. The indicated number is 500 thousand people, with the current rule, it takes 1% of the electorate (1.4 million subscriptions), and the most difficult to embrace parliamentary some text. The best part is the possibility of Amendment to the Constitution (PEC), by collecting 1.5 million signatures collected in digital domain official something today banned for citizenship. A PEC, even in parliament, is always a complicated and traumatic, like the Amendment's Reelection, June 1997. Today the citizen can only attempt a maneuver difficult and expensive to amend the Constitution, the Direct Action of Unconstitutionality (ADIN). This legal instrument is used to require, for example, complementary legislation regulating constitutional rights not yet assured. Therefore, the use of PEC via electronic signature is a breakthrough.

I recognize that the theme excites upstairs. More operators are concerned about the political professional with public campaign financing; purpose of coalitions; flexible voting list; campaign spending to be executed by the legends; ban coalitions for proportional elections, and the establishment of an election year, ending with elections every two years in the country. All these items are relevant for party representation, but the only really able to break a paradigm is of direct interest, even if in electronic format.

It would be folly to anticipate an outcome to the vote. Any behavior can come from a parliament where Marco Feliciano (PSC-SP) chairs the Commission on Human Rights through judgment. Within a minimalist optimism, if only the mechanism of participatory democracy is approved, we will have a real gain.
