Please vote. I will keep the voting open for at least three days, possibly more (so at least until 1900 on Friday 15 EET). As a constitutional amendment this bill needs a two thirds majority to pass in this voting stage.

And no, formatting is way too hard to do on my phone in a limited time, sorry.

Well, I say the voting has ended, so here are the results:
Voting: 6
Majority: 6
Votes in:
-favor: 6
-opposition: 0
-abstention: 0

This constitutional amendment has reached the majority and so has passed voting stage one. I will read over the legislation soon, but today is my flight back to California, so my activity will be rather sparse for about 20 hours.
