I dont know the exact answer but ill try and help as i did a similar thing last year.
I think 'contstutional changes' are changes to the system of government. You nedd to argue both sides.
They are unsatifactory in solving social issues:
-cannot expect the people to vote all the time about issues(as they dont have the time, and if they are often then they would get fed up-voter apathy)
-Many will always vote in an emotional way instead of rational(heart over head)
- minorities will always suffer as a result of our system(FPTP) -tyranny of the majority
-Wealthy groups and taliods can influence how people vote
They are satifactory:
-most direct form of democracy( MP's can just vote how the whip tells them and not represent constituents views)
I dont know any more points -but i started you off anyway haha . Good luck!
