Article 78

O. Chapter 15. Adopting and amending the constitution; the referendum

Article 205. Referendum set by the President of the Republic

Article 205 sets a time-limit for the President’s calling of the referendum of no earlier than 50 and no later than 65 days of the adoption of the respective decision. It should be made clear that the time limit is not only relevant in cases of “decisions”, but also in cases of a draft (Article 206). On the other hand the majority requirements are valid also in cases of a “decision” to accede a supranational International Organisation.
