Who were allowed to vote for the formation of the National Assembly

Who were allowed to vote for the formation of the National Assembly? 


Only men above 25 years of age and those who paid taxes equal to at least 3 days of a labourers wage were given the status of active citizens. 

And they were entitled to vote. The remaining men and women were classified as passive citizens and were not allowed to vote. 

To qualify as an elector and then as a member of the assembly, a man had to belong to the highest bracket of tax payers.
