Liechtenstein in Turmoil Over Vote to Revoke Ruler’s Veto

Liechtenstein will decide over the next three days whether to strip its monarch of veto powers after he threatened to block moves to legalize abortion.

Prince Alois von und zu Liechtenstein has said he may quit his royal duties should a majority of the Manhattan-sized Alpine country wedged between Switzerland and Austria vote today and on July 1 to revoke his power to overturn referendums.
