In the initial vote on the constitution in July, the two-thirds majority required was not reached, after which new elections were held on 27 August. The newly elected island council could then adopt the constitution with an ordinary majority.[1]

The constitution entered into force on 10 October 2010, on the date of the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles.
