2014 Sammarinese referendum

Two referendums took place in San Marino on 25 May 2014. Voters were asked whether they approved of repealing laws on pensions reform and on medical practice,[1] both of which were passed on 29 October 2013.[1] Voters approved both proposals.

Background

Prior to the referendums, the quorum required for a proposal to be approved was reduced from 32% to 25%, meaning that 8,398 voters had to vote in favour for the proposals to be approved.[2]

Campaign

The ruling Sammarinese Christian Democratic Party–Party of Socialists and Democrats–Popular Alliance coalition campaigned against the proposals.[3] The Socialist Party supported repealing the medical practice law.[4] The Union for the Republic also supported the repeal of the medical practice law, but opposed repealing the pensions law.[5]
