Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


The Constitution of the Republic of Nicaragua is that of March 30, 1905. It vests the legislative power in a Congress of one House consisting of 36 members elected for 6 years by universal suffrage. The executive power is with a President appointed for 6 years. At the present time, however, the Republic is governed under a provisional law, issued Sept. 15, 1910, by Senor Juan J. Estrada, then Provisional President, until such time as a Constitutional Convention can be held to provide for a new constitution. In the meantime the executive and legislative functions are exercised by the Provisional President and the Cabinet.
