DO YOU HAVE ANY GREAT IDEAS FOR THE NEW NAME OF THE LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON-MIDI-PYRÉNÉES?
You can now go ONLINE, and add your suggestion to a ‘consultation citoyenne’ form.
This first phase in the renaming, launched this week, “permet à chacune et à chacun de proposer un nom et nourrir ainsi la réflexion du «Comité du Nom de la Région», puis de l’Assemblée régionale”. (loosely translated as ‘allows everyone to suggest a name)
The second phase from April 15 will be the submission of a shortlist of names to the Assemblée régionale, who will then look at ways of putting this list before the residents of the region, and giving them a chance to vote on their choice of name.
The final phase will be the decision of the regional assembly, following this citizen consultation, and state confirmation of the new name before October 1, 2016.
Phew! Don’t like to be negative but It all sounds like a lot of extra work to me!!
