The new Bolivian constitution contains 411 articles and is 118 pages long. It was approved on 25 January 2009 by a little over 50% of Bolivia's population during a national referendum. Over 100 new laws must be discussed and passed by Congress and dozens more must be modified in order to actually enact and apply the new constitution and it is likely Bolivia will top news headlines for some time to come. This will all be very interesting to follow in the coming year.

Read it in Spanish on this page.

Read it in English here.
It was translated by a translator in La Paz Bolivia. He is offering his English translation for just $6.99 and you can download it immediately. We'd like to know what you thought of this translation. If you have comments contact us.

If you're interested in really good, really thorough analysis of Bolivian politics on a pretty regular basis, I suggest viewing Miguel Centellas' website Pronto. He's been analyzing and blogging about politics in Bolivia since 2002 (although he also blogs about any other topic that interests him) and includes really detailed background and supporting documentation for his points of view. You can also read Miguel Buitrago's blog MABBlog in which he shares his point of view and lists other interesting sources. It's all in English! Both are available on my Bolivia News page.
