The Republic of Haiti, formerly a French colony, was proclaimed independent January 1, 1804, and is now governed under a Constitution ratified on June 12, 1918, and considerably amended in January, 1928. Pending the creation of a Senate and a Chamber of Deputies, the legislative and executive powers are exercised by a Council of State composed of twenty-one members appointed by the President, and holding office during his pleasure. The President is now elected by the Council of State for a period of six years, but cannot be re-elected.
