The Constitutional Assembly (Sabian: Konstitoutsaierovê) was the first constituent assembly of Sabia and Verona, tasked with writing the third Sabioveronese Constitution, which was adopted on 21 April 2017. It was a unicameral body of willingly self-appointed individuals in the Kingdom's central regions (the city of Alios and Gonn) formed on 8 March 2017. It was formed following a procedure codified by the Sabioveronese Parliament prior to the 2017 constitutional referendum, in which the population overwhelmingly voted in favor of ditching the present 2015 Constitution, written by the Congress of Salisse, and writing a new constitution from scratch.

Background

The 2015 Constitution of Sabia and Verona was adopted by the Congress of Salisse, a conference of self-appointed political leaders from different political parties held in Salisse on 18 August 2015. The Salisse Congress sought to draft a new constitution to better suit the needs of Sabia and Verona after the execution of the Haronos Plan.[1] However, it was understood the 2015 Constitution was an "emergency constitution", being called the "Just-in-case Constitution".

Starting in 2016, the Left Alliance, one of the three political parties active in Sabioveronese politics, began to campaign for constitutional reform. The Left's leader, Apollo Cerwyn had been a member of the Salisse Congress, but claimed nonetheless the 2015 Constitution was deeply flawed in different sections, including the idea of separation of powers and the inflexibility on electoral laws.[1] Cerwyn became Deputy PM, on 1 October 2016, when the Left became the junior party in a coalition with the National Artists' Guild, headed by Shounn Virny as Prime Minister of Sabia and Verona.[2]

According to Cerwyn and other Left Alliance referents, Virny had promised them the issue of constitutional reform would be discussed as part of the government's program and addressed in Parliament.[3] The PM, however, refused to discuss the topic and dismissed the Left's concerns, further straining relations in the already conflicted governing coalition.[4]

By February 2017, the Left had teamed-up with the Liberals, the largest party in Parliament, to campaign for constitutional reform. Alongside the Liberals, the Left was able to put pressure on the unpopular Virny to allow for a referendum to be held on whether the 2015 Constitution should be reformed or not.[1] The referendum was held on 5 March 2017, the first of its kind in Sabioveronese history. It concluded with the 'Yes' taking 74% of the vote, with a turnout of 90%. Following the referendum, Virny resigned as NNS leader.[5]
