The Constitutional Veto Point is a term coined by Kirlawan political scientist Humphrey Fuerst. It is a description of the point where a party holds any number one-third of seats in an elected body (typically a national Parliament). In nearly all countries, two-thirds of seats are needed to push forward changes to the constitution of that nation, and as such if 1/3+1 vote against the change will be blocked. The first known usage of the term was in The Kirlawa Chronicle in 2295 in an article on the revival of the Democratic Party of Kirlawa.
