A Constitutional Convention is process by which constitutional changes are decided upon prior to going through the ratification process. Two such conventions have been held, thus far.

History

The First Constitutional Convention was called on 13 April 2019, lasting until 30 August of that year. This convention would establish much of the rules, processes, and traditions for future constitutional conventions. This convention resulted in the final draft of the constitution, which was signed into law on 15 February 2020.

A second convention was held from 3 December 2020 to 12 January 2021, resulting in the first constitutional amendment, CA-2021-001, which was signed into law on 8 February 2021. This resulted in a number of changes to the constitution, including the creation of the role of Deputy Prime Minister.
