Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Display:
Changing the Danish constitution requires a majority in Parliament (or perhaps a 2/3 supermajority, I don't recall precisely); followed by a ratification in a referendum by a 2/3 supermajority of the cast votes, with 40 % of the eligible votes being quorum; followed by a ratification by a new parliament.

So it takes at least one general election and one referendum. Hypothetically, you could do the whole thing in the space of two months... but that's only if you have a "national consensus" type situation.
