Centuries - Personalities - Signatures
Following the state of war with Serbia, the first measures of the Tisza government introduced Article 63 of 1912 on Sovereign Power. The article granted the government the right to govern by regulations, granted the authority to exercise sovereign power, including the right to appoint government commissioners, the suspension of municipal autonomies, statute of judges, preliminary press censorship, restrictions on freedom of assembly, the widespread utilization of police and gendarmerie forces, and strict actions against strikes.
The application was read out and debated at the lodge’s meeting on March 15, 1912, and the application was accepted. The objectives of the lodge were the same as those of the radicalists, namely the modernization of the country, universal and secret suffrage, rights for nationalities, and land reform.
