The Second Amendment is an amendment to the Lovian Constitution and was proposed by King Dimitri I of Lovia soon after the independence problems in Hurbanova, Oceana. The amendment concerns the sovereignity, independence, unitarity and indivisibility of the Lovian National State. All fundamentals of the Lovian state are defined in the Second Amendment. The article was originally proposed as the Twelfth Article of the Constitution, but was adapted as the First Article A. The original First Article became Article 1 B.
The proposal was finally accepted on April 11, 2008 after the vote of Prime Minister Yuri Medvedev. All Members of the Congress supported the Constitutional proposal, though some resistance was expected by some Congressmen.
