II. ((Resignation of citizenship))
A magistrate who announces his resignation of citizenship shall immediately and irrevocably cease to hold any and all his magistracies.
III. ((Intention to resign))
An announcement of intention to cease to hold office at some later time or to cease to be a citizen at some later time is not an announcement of resignation for the purposes of this lex.
