Introduction On 27 October the Constitutional Commission, instated by the Belgian Provisional Government, finished its activities. Grenier, an otherwise unknown author, was only one of many Belgian citizens who took to the press to express his views on the draft Constitution.
The nation no longer wished to share sovereignty with a monarchial power, he contended, because the perpetual combat between the two elements undermined the order of the state. Therefore, only the delegates of the sovereign nation, united in the Chamber of Representatives, were to make laws under the new Constitution.
Grenier criticised the draft Constitution for being ambiguous on this point, and for including a Senate which, being composed of hereditary members, would infringe on the free exercise of power by the sovereign nation. Parliament as the Sole Representative of the Nation Like most of the articles of the Belgian Constitution, article 25 was not newly invented.
The Congress members were fully aware of their quality of representatives of the people, in whose name they spoke and acted. The Congress jealously guarded its position as the only legitimate authority on the grounds of its direct election by the people. The Congress followed this reasoning. The eldest member, the journalist and revolutionary hero Louis de Potter, delivered a speech in which he justified the coming to power of the Provisional Government by its endeavours to protect the Belgian Revolution as well as by the consent of the people.
However, the question of legitimacy continued to produce bouts of distrust towards the Provisional Government on the part of the National Congress. Tellingly, it refused to accept the draft Constitution drawn up by the Constitutional Commission. Out of the same concern of safeguarding its position as the sole representative of the nation, the Congress rejected the idea of submitting the new Constitution, or parts of it, to popular referendum.
In the republican political club Reunion Centrale , 77 a speech against the Senate and the royal veto was delivered by Joseph-Ferdinand Toussaint, a clerk of the Provisional Government with Saint-Simonian sympathies. Within the Congress too, the proposed Senate met with fierce resistance. Unicameralism was one of the most conspicuous elements of the counterproposal launched by Joseph Forgeur and his associates.
The debates of the Congress time and again pointed at a conception of sovereignty where the nation governs itself through its representatives.
The question of sovereignty most explicitly surfaced in the debate over the form of state. Both were treated as mutually exclusive entities. The citation indicates that only the chambers were considered to represent the nation, and that the latter was conceptually different from the head of state. Also, it confirms the interpretation of the nation as a last resort, since the chambers were, by their control over the budget, able to block any unwanted initiative of the executive, even when it stemmed from the royal prerogatives.
Article 80 stated that the King only takes function after having sworn loyalty to the Constitution in the presence of the united chambers. Since the King was only vested with his constitutional powers on the moment of taking the oath, periods of interregnum occurred every time between the death of the reigning monarch and the taking of the oath by his successor.
However, this interpretation seems to be invalidated by the establishment of the absolute royal veto. Article 69 stated that the King sanctions and promulgates the laws. Since he cannot be forced to sign the laws presented to him by the chambers, this arrangement amounts to the absolute royal veto in legislative matters. The Congress debates shed a different light on the question.
The veto was not being discussed as a reinforcement of royal power, but as a safeguard of the will of the nation. Clearly, the majority in Congress was satisfied with the reasoning developed by Raikem in the report of the Central Section on the powers of the head of state.
By making the veto suspensive, the monarch would in effect be deprived of his share in the legislative power, thus turning it into the exclusive terrain of the chambers. It would prove unstable, since a monarch would not sit easy with the sovereignty of the people upon which the system was based. Whereas the republican delegates warned against the struggle for power that was to result from the cohabitation of popular sovereignty and monarchy, the majority believed that the two could coexist in harmony.
As Wyvekens put it A republican system, it was feared, would entail continual power struggles between parties and ambitious individuals. Presidential elections especially were dreaded. Monarchist delegates depicted them as recurring moments of profound crisis.
The passions and rivalries they unleashed threatened to undermine the state in its very existence. The choice for a hereditary head of state would prevent these disorders, on the condition that its powers were clearly circumscribed by the Constitution. The proof of the republican foundations was that the monarch received his mandate from the people via its representatives in Congress. Even when the head of state proved vicious, his vices were safely surrounded by unshakeable constitutional barriers.
Another description of the system was provided by Viscount Hippolyte Vilain XIIII in a brochure he published shortly before the meeting of the Congress, to which he was subsequently elected.
For Vilain XIIII, constitutional monarchies were characterised by their combination of republican customs and monarchical calm. The vigilance of the Belgian people would make sure to remind the future monarch of his duties laid down in the Constitution.
The function of head of state was entrusted to a Regent in the person of Baron Erasme-Louis Surlet de Chokier, who had until that time acted as president of the Congress. Thus, the Constitution was fully operative several months before Leopold of Saxe-Coburg was elected King.
His candidature was agreed to on the condition of his full acceptance of the Constitution drawn up by the Congress. Leopold indeed only grudgingly accepted the Constitution. For him to be able to do so, the heredity principle was considered an essential prerequisite.
It was often repeated that, in order to survive, every state organisation must contain elements of both movement and stability. The permanent character of royal power was necessary to counterbalance the volatility and changeability of the elected chambers, since instability was harmful to the State. Thus, the monarch was granted a share in sovereignty, but exclusively by delegation, and on the conditions stipulated by the nation and listed in the Constitution.
The same idea underlies the intervention of De Theux de Meylandt, who spoke of It was however impossible for the monarch to use these powers autonomously. Lebeau went on to say that the Council of Ministers itself was controlled by the Parliament. Even if few speakers went as far as Lebeau, it is clear from the debates that the King was expected to act in accordance with the will of Parliament.
Lebeau for example used the argument to cut down the discussion over the royal prerogatives. A False Opposition In spite of its underdetermined formulation, article 25 can thus safely be said to proclaim national sovereignty in the sense of sovereignty from below. Although it may have been clear to all that the nation was the ultimate source of legitimacy and that the members of Parliament represented it at the exclusion of the King , the article did not specify of whom the sovereign nation was composed, nor who was entitled to membership.
The oldest constitutional manual, the Manuel constitutionnel de la Belgique published in April , proclaimed Docquier defined the Nation as De Gerlache was not just anybody. He had been president of both the Constitutional Commission and the National Congress. His brochure was aimed against the new tendency of one party governments that put an end to almost two decades of unionism in Belgian politics.
Most Catholics deplored this evolution. They saw parliamentarism as a threat to national unity and to the preservation of conservatism. In the National Congress there was no trace of a theoretical distinction between both kinds of sovereignty. In other words, in the language of political theory of the day, and contrary to later interpretations, popular sovereignty did not equate to universal suffrage. The same is evidently true for the Belgian National Congress.
It seems logical to assume that the lack of debate over the theoretical nature of sovereignty in the Congress reflected, among other things, a tacit common opinion over its practical manifestation.
After all, article 25 merely indicated the nation as the source of sovereignty, leaving open every option as to the modalities of political participation.
It is true that all its talk of popular sovereignty did not prevent the Congress from carefully restricting political rights. Not a single call for universal suffrage was heard in the assembly room. Much as the National Congress recognised the people as the source of all legitimate authority, it had no intentions of letting the voice of the people dictate politics.
The Congress was a socially conservative body. The delegates held clear views on who was to represent the nation and who was not. The Constitutional Commission had proposed to fix the property requirements for the franchise by ordinary law.
Defacqz even motivated his proposal by a concern to stave off calls for universal suffrage in the future. By the introduction of direct election, the nation would finally have real representatives as opposed to the indirectly elected members of the Estates General under the Dutch regime.
Regardless of their political inclination, they interpreted it as the proclamation of popular sovereignty. The radical Courrier de la Sambre defined nation as However, the exact meaning of popular sovereignty was a source of controversy. The concept was explicitly discussed by journalists and led to sharp disputes between rival newspapers. The Courrier de la Meuse , while supporting the Revolution, deplored the course taken by the Congress.
While it recognised that the Revolution had been driven by the popular principle, it fiercely opposed turning it into a principle of government. Following the newspaper, the principle of popular sovereignty was not only dangerous, but also impracticable.
Whichever political regime would be instated by the Constitution, it would never fully conform to the implications of article The newspaper arrived at this conclusion by its identification of sovereignty with the actual exercise of power. While it did approve of the idea that every power needed to rest on the consent of popular opinion, it rejected as impossible the idea of entrusting the exercise of power to the entire people.
This would require a distribution of power among all citizens, which meant its annihilation altogether. In every society, power is held by a limited group of people who command, while the rest of the population obeys.
The newspaper went on to observe that even the National Congress, by its own composition, contravened the popular principle it so proudly proclaimed.
Far from taking its mandate from the hands of the entire people, it took it from the infinitesimal minority that had been allowed to vote. Le Vrai Patriote accused it of confusing the origin and the exercise of power. It considered popular sovereignty to be self-evident because a government only exists where a people exists, and a people always has the power to change its mandataries.
However, this by no means implied the establishment of pure democracy. The Courrier de la Meuse could not be convinced. Its fears were made worse by the composition of the National Congress, which it judged to be all too democratic.
Already sovereignty was fatally divided among so many electors and so many Congress delegates. Furthermore, the new Constitution accorded a far too preponderant position to the Chamber of Representatives, at the expense of the monarch. Soon afterwards, however, a new legitimation was needed. Violent actions in the streets of Brussels led to the creation of new forms of authority alongside the official ones. As the Belgian protests started to resemble a proper rebellion, the government denounced them as illegal.
Towards the end of September, Dutch troops violently clashed with an improvised army of insurrectionists on the streets of Brussels, sparking general rebellion against the Dutch government. The killing of Belgian citizens by the Dutch troops was presented as a final attack on the Belgian Nation by which the Dutch government forfeited its remaining claims to legitimate authority. As Dutch authority was eroded, the Provisional Government filled the void. The Provisional Government could not by right claim to represent the nation.
They did however show a measure of distrust towards this non-elected authority. The mandate of the Constitutional Commission in particular was a matter of debate in the press, just as it was in the Congress. The most radical protest was indeed heard on the left side of the ideological spectrum. The Courrier de la Sambre put into doubt the mandate of the Congress on the same grounds.
