The Constitution of the United Harvian Islands, Harvian Constitution or just Constitution is the highest set of laws of the Harvian Islands. The Constitution's supremacy mandatory. In it, all fundamental statements and political and judiciary procedures are enshrined. The first constitution proposal to be approved was written by Norman Arellano Muñoz (HCU). It was accepted by a majority in the Senate in November 2010. The proposal contained three articles, mostly concerning the political organization of the country.

Explanation of the word "Constitution" Edit

A constitution is a set of laws that a set of people have made and agreed upon for government—often as a written document—that enumerates and limits the powers and functions of a political entity. These rules together make up, i.e. constitute, what the entity is. In the case of countries and autonomous regions of federal countries the term refers specifically to a constitution defining the fundamental political principles, and establishing the structure, procedures, powers and duties, of a government. By limiting the government's own reach, most constitutions guarantee certain rights to the people. The term constitution can be applied to any overall system of law that defines the functioning of a government, including several uncodified historical constitutions that existed before the development of modern codified constitutions.
