Legal System of Burundi
Law of Burundi
A constitutional referendum was held in Burundi on 9 March 1992. It followed the 1991 referendum on the Charter of National Unity, which gave the government a mandate to draw up a new constitution. The resulting document created a presidential republic with unlimited five-year term for candidates, introduced proportional representation as the method for electing the Parliament, guaranteed freedom of the press and human rights, and the requirement for registered political parties to accept the Charter of National Unity.
