The initiative of revision belongs concurrently to the President of the Republic upon a decision taken in the Council of Ministers, and to the Members of Parliament. To be taken into consideration, any draft or proposition of revision must be voted on, in identical terms, by a two-thirds majority of the members of the National Assembly and the Senate.
The revision of the Constitution is approved by referendum. However, a technical revision may take place with the approval of a three-fifths majority of the members of the National Assembly and the Senate meeting in Congress.
No procedure of revision may be started or pursued if it interferes with:
â€¢ The integrity of the territory, independence or national unity;
â€¢ The republican form of the state, the principle of the division of powers and secularity;
â€¢ The freedoms and fundamental rights of the citizen;
â€¢ Political pluralism.
