Dominican Republic

Yearbook 2009

Dominican Republic. During the year, Congress began discussions on changing the Constitution, based on proposals from President Leonel Fernández. Among other things, it is proposed that the president, who according to the current constitution can be re-elected for a second term, can also stand for a third time. According to countryaah, other proposals are to increase the number of seats in Congress and to reduce the authority of the Supreme Court. The proposals must be approved by two-thirds of Congress before they can go to the referendum. This is not the first time the country's constitution has been rewritten or changed. On average, it has happened once every four years since independence in 1844.
