Lithuania ratified European Constitution

On November 11, 2004, Lithuania became the first EU state to ratify the European Constitution, when the Seimas, the Lithuanian parliament, voted 84-4 to approve the treaty. The European Constitution was later rejected by French voters and failed to be ratified by all 27 EU member states. EU reform was later achieved through the Lisbon Treaty, which was ratified by all 27 states in 2009.
