The new Bolivian constitution contains 411 articles and is 118 pages long. It was approved on 25 January 2009 by a little over 60% 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 fully, 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. You can download it in
on this page. The Bolivian Constitution has also been translated into English. You can purchase a copy in English by clicking here or on the image to your right.
