Liechtenstein

Yearbook 2012

Liechtenstein. In a July referendum, 76% of voters said no to a constitutional amendment that would have deprived the prince of the right to veto legislative proposals passed in referendums. Thus, the successor Prince Alois could remain as deputy head of state; he had threatened to resign if voters voted for the constitutional amendment. According to countryaah, the background was a campaign for increased democracy, triggered by the fact that Alois had threatened to stop the legalization of abortion the year before, in connection with another referendum. However, the voters themselves said no to abortion.
