Apart from the 19 September referendum on euthanasia, New Zealanders will also cast ballots on the same day to decide if the Prime Minister will get a second term and the legal use of cannabis for recreational purposes.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a referendum for the country to decide on legalizing euthanasia for those who have less than six months to live.
On Tuesday, she said that voters will cast ballots on 19 September to make their choice on whether a new euthanasia law should be passed in New Zealand.
Under the new legislation, doctors will be allowed to prescribe a lethal dose of medication to patients suffering from a terminal illness if the patients request it.
