The cabinet will discuss organisational and technical preparations for the 2010 referendum. These include, in addition to a series of tasks and deadlines for its implementation, the Finance Ministry’s role in allocating the funds necessary to hold the referendum, since nothing has been allocated for this purpose in the state budget. According to law, referendum expenses should be reimbursed from the state budget.
