More than 100 new constitutional documents added this month!
World Constitutions Illustrated April 2012 Update

New Constitutional Documents:

With the March content release, we've added more than 100 new documents to HeinOnline's World Constitutions Illustrated. We've added material to the Central African Republic, Chile, Equatorial Guinea, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Pakistan, Tuvalu, and Uganda. The following notable documents were added this month:

Central African Republic
We have revised our translations of the current Constitution of 2004, both the original text and the consolidated text as amended to 2010, as we were able to acquire copies of the text as published in the Journal Officiel of 2006 and of 2011.  We have also added the French texts of the Constitutions of 1976 and 1964/5, and the amending law of 1962 to the Constitution of 1959.

Our own current/latest translation of the Constitution of 1980, as codified in 2005, has been updated to include the amendments of Law No. 20.573 of 6 March 2012.

Equatorial Guinea
We include our own translation, as well as the official Spanish text of the Constitution of 1982, as amended and restated and adopted by the Referendum of 23 November 2011 and promulgated 16 February 2012. The presentation of unchanged articles also allowed a revised translation of the text as amended to 1998 to be produced. Certain inconsistencies in our previous source texts have now been resolved.

In February, we published the text of the 20th Amendment Bill as the text of the Act itself, while adopted, had not been made available. We now include the Act, as published in the Gazette of Pakistan on 29 February 2012.

New Linking:

We've linked 12 constitutions from Belgium, Denmark, Greece, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland to Recopilacion de las Constituciones Vigentes en Europa y America (1884), by Francisco de Heredia.
