Yearbook 1999

Liechtenstein. In August, Liechtenstein celebrated his National Day in memory of the first land acquisition in 1699 by a Liechtenstein prince who laid the geographical foundation for the Principality. According to Countryaah official website, the festivities took place on a large meadow adjacent to the princely castle of Vaduz. All citizens of the country as well as visiting tourists were invited to listen and enjoy refreshments. After a fair, Prince Hans spoke with Adam II and Parliament's spokesman. Both speeches were characterized by the monarch's ambition to change the distribution of power in the country and the role of the head of state. The prince has put forward a proposal, which is not known, but he stressed that if Parliament does not approve of his proposal he will demand a referendum on the matter. At the same time, the 54-year-old monarch told him that he intended to withdraw from politics and gradually surrender his duties to the 31-year-old heiress, Alois.
