After a working trip, Mr. Grittani was struck by the approach to the preparation of the referendum and, especially, by the fact that the DPR takes into account the legitimate interests of people with disabilities who cannot independently come to the polling station, but have the opportunity to express their will with the help of mobile election commissions, which work according to specially compiled lists of voting "at home".
