Liechtenstein citizens back Prince Alois who vowed to veto abortion leglislation.

Voters in Liechtenstein have vindicated Crown Prince Alois’ right of veto in all cases. 

On the 1st of July, 76% of voters in the country decided to vote in favour of upholding the Crown Prince’s right of veto in all cases.

This referendum was a response to Prince Alois’ statements in September threatening to veto the results of a separate referendum to legalise abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy.

The referendum on the prince’s power of veto arose after supporters of abortion legislation sought to curtail the prince’s power to veto referendums.

According to a spokeswoman Prince Alois intended his veto as a “clear signal that abortion isn’t an acceptable solution for an unwanted pregnancy.” 

Ultimately, the prince’s veto was unnecessary this time, as the measure to legalise abortion failed.
