Opinion from the Finnish Constitution Committee on the draft European Constitution drawn up by the Convention (2003)

In 2003, the Finnish Constitution Committee delivers an opinion on the draft European Constitution drawn up by the Convention and looks ahead to the Intergovernmental Conference. While it is in favour of a referendum for the ratification of the future Treaty, it rules that this is a matter for political decision and is not necessary from a constitutional viewpoint.
