The 2011 State Reform, also known as the Tenth Amendment, was a major reform of the Lovian Constitution. The original idea for the reform was discussed in mid May 2011. A draft was created by Marcus Villanova on 21 May 2011, and a final version by William Krosby was approved in the Second Chamber on 29 May 2011. The 2011 State Reform greatly changed the structure of Congress and the position of the Prime Minister, and also removed the Member by Right status of the King, King Dimitri I of Lovia. The law gave rights to fair trials, reformed the Line of Succession, and introduced government coalitions as well.
The reform greatly changed the ways that federal elections affect the composition of the following Congress. The reform has been attributed to allowing more small parties to become part of Congress. Despite worries that the reform would allow partisan governments to form, only representing part of Congress, congresses following the reform continued to form grand coalitions to choose the composition of the government, similar to the status before the reform.
The reform was greatly supported both in Congress and by the populace, with 67% of the Congress voting in favor of the bill and approximately 90% of the Lovian people supporting it.
