Chapter Summary

Ever since Liberte gained independence at the end of a long bloody war in 1833 it has been difficult to govern. The United Nations brokered peace accords brought an end to the conflict in 1996 and elections were held in 1997 on the traditional and statutory date of December .Under the peace accords, three principal modifications to the Constitution of Liberte were made: first, human rights treaties ratified by Liberte were given juridical status equivalent to the Constitution. Secondly, the emergency powers of the executive were defined and limited and this was reflected in Article 101 of the Constitution of Liberty. Thirdly, the armed forces were restricted to external security and the National Police were given exclusivity over internal citizen security.
