  1. Constitution of Nauru

    Politics of Nauru The constitution of the Republic of Nauru was adopted following national independence on 31 January 1968. In 2007 there were political debates in progress with a view to amend aspects of the Constitution, owing to the challenge of widely acknowledged political instability. One notable issue being discussed was the possibility of making the office of President of Nauru directly elected by the population, instead of the office being indirectly elected by the Parliament of Nauru . Owing to frequent recourse to the vote of no confidence s, changes of President have been frequent i.e. Bernard Dowiyogo was appointed President of Nauru a total of seven times, prior to his death in 2003 . Supporters of making the office of President independent of a Parliamentary vote hope that increased stability will ensure from the adoption of such a measure. Sceptics are concerned that attempts may arise to set aside the elected President through the courts bearing in mind also that under the Nauruan court system some appeals are actually heard in Australia . Arrangement of Parts The Constitution of Nauru is divided into 11 parts and 6 schedules Part I Articles 1 and 2 The Republic of Nauru and the Supreme Law of Nauru br Part II Articles 3 15 Protection of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms br Part III Articles 16 25 The President and the Executive br Part IV Articles 26 47 The Legislature br Part V Articles 48 57 The Judicature br Part VI Articles 58 67 Finance br Part VII Articles 68 70 The Public Service br Part VIII Articles 71 76 Citizenship br Part IX Articles 77 79 Emergency Powers br Part X Articles 80 84 General Provisions br Part XI Articles 85 100 Transitional Provisions External links http www.paclii.org nr legis num act con256 Text of Constitution of Nauru Nauru topics Category Government of Nauru Category 1968 in law Category Constitutions by country Nauru Nauru stub no Naurus grunnlov pl Konstytucja Nauru ...   more details
