by an absolute majority of votes is valid as
the decision of the Diet.

(44) Sanction and Promulgation.

Every law passed by the Diet is submitted
to the Emperor and Grand Duke for his
sanction, before giving which His Majesty consults
the Senate.

This sanction given, the law comes into force,
but in order that it may be applied it must be
promulgated and published.

Promulgation is made by the Senate, which
signs the law in the Emperor’s name, citing
his sanction, and giving also the date of the
promulgation ; fundamental laws, however, are
promulgated by manifestoes, signed by the
Emperor, and bearing the date at which they
were sanctioned.

All laws are published in the Official Gazette
of Finland, in Swedish and Finnish, as well as
in the collection of the laws of the Grand
Duchy, also published in the two languages.*

The laws are read out in the churches.

* The above-mentioned collection is published in Russian,
too.—(Author’s note.)
