Only around 30 points are to be modified--points on which the LSAP, DP, Greens and CSV can reach a consensus.

Instead of a full constitutional revision, the parliamentary commission charged with the task announced Tuesday there would instead be a “substantial revision” of the text dating from 1868, as reported by our colleagues at RTL Today.
Given that a two-thirds majority is required to make amendments to the text, only around 30 points are to be modified--points on which the LSAP, DP, Greens and CSV can reach a consensus.
As our colleagues at Paperjam report, parliamentary commission president Alex Bodry (LSAP) said it would be “more logical to implement the reform in several stages”. Bodry further added, per RTL, that the revision “would be the largest revision of our constitution in our history from the last 150 years.”
