Article 23 - Decisions, voting

Article 23

Decisions, voting


   (1) The State Parliament may only decide or vote if at least one half of its members are present. Save as otherwise provided in constitutional acts or in the standing orders of the State Parliament, an absolute majority of votes cast is required. The standing orders may not derogate from this requirement in cases where the enactment of laws is concerned. The President exercises voting rights in the same way as every other deputy.
   (2) Constitutional acts may only be passed with a two-thirds majority of votes cast. They must be designated as constitutional acts.
   (3) The enactment of a law can only be declared urgent with a two-thirds majority of votes cast. Constitutional acts may not be declared urgent.
