Petition: Cancel of the current vote and creating of a new craft of the consititution ¶
in the last week very strange things happend:
1. The voting period began before unity day (decree 6 overwrote decree 3 in that point. However articles 4 and 5 of decree number 3 are still in action)
2. There was no time to review the current draft of the constitution before the start of the referendum
3. There was no explicit opportunity to vote "no" in order so express, that the draft needs another review. No option of voting "no" is illegal as decree number 3 states.
4. The constitution in its current state has major flaws. This, for example, can be used to form a dictatorship out of Asgardia.
5. The constitution draft states that the voting is done by the end of unity day. But the voting will be opened for a longer time period.
6. Asgardian officials stated, that the outcome of the referendum will be ignored and the constitution wil still be adopted, regardless of the quorum of >50% that is stated in the draft of the constitution.
Each of these points are affronts to the democratic principles!
Therefore I demand the cancel of the current referendum and to declare the result null. Then to revisit the draft constitution to create a new draft which ensures, that democratic principles hold true and a proper separation of power.
Proposed changes can be found at:

Discussion of the second draft constitution
