For amendments to the Constitution, a bill of amendment is presented to the Althingi. It then goes through three readings, and may be amended in the course of discussion by the Althingi. If the bill is then passed, the Althingi must be dissolved and a new Althingi must be elected. The bill is then presented again, and if the Althingi passes it without amendment, the amendments to the Constitution then take effect once they have been confirmed by the President. The Constitutional Council has presented to the Althingi its proposals for a new draft Constitution. If this draft is submitted to the Althingi, it will be treated as described above.
