Iceland's citizens were given a chance to help forge a new constitution for their country through Facebook and Twitter, so it's not surprising that they backed the resulting draft. Now it's over to the politicians.
On Saturday the country held a referendum asking voters six questions about the draft, the first of which was whether they wanted to go ahead with using it as the basis for their new constitution. Two thirds voted yes.
Which makes sense, if you think about it. Give the people a chance to feed into the drafting, taking advantage of the internet’s convenience and low barriers, and they’ll stand behind the result.
