Before the revision of the constitution in 2003 several groups criticised the constitutional proposal made by the Prince because it would extend his political power even further.

In a public vote which was dominated by the fear, the Prince would leave the country if the citizens would not agree to his constitutional proposal the Liechtenstein citizens accepted his new constitution. Since then the Prince has the right to overrule all three state branches (legislative, executive, judiciary).

After the vote these critical groups decided to continue their engagement for democracy.
