Background

On 22 March 2018, Tsar and Grand Prince Alexander Feofanovič IV announced his resignation and plans were made to reform Pavlov into a democratic system.[1] The Pavlovian Veche appointed a two-member provisional government to govern the country until a new government formed. In addition to this, the Constitutional Commission of Pavlov was established to draft a new republican constitution for Pavlov.

Following the completion of the draft constitution, the provisional government held a nation referendum on its acceptance. The constitution was approved by 71.4% of voters.[2] The new constitution established the position of Minister-President, its powers and the method of elections.
