República Boliviana
  • M. Epstein
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


The first Constitution of the Republic of Bolivia (so named in 1825) bears date October 28, 1880. A new Constitution was adopted in October, 1938, whereby executive power is vested in a President, elected for four years by direct popular vote, and not eligible for re-election until four years after his term has ended. A Vice-President is elected to succeed him in case the post falls vacant. There is a Congress of two chambers, called the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, which meets annually on August 6 at La Paz. There are 3 Senators for each of eight Departments, elected for six years (one-third retiring every two years), and 70 Representatives are elected for four years (one-half retiring every two years). Extraordinary sessions may be held for special purposes when convoked by the Executive, or by a majority of both Chambers. The President’s Cabinet consists of the Ministers of 11 departments-Foreign Relations, Immigration and Worship; Finance and Statistics; Interior, Justice and Propaganda; Public Works and Communications; Commerce and Industry; Labour and Social Development; Health; Mines and Petroleum; Education. Fine Arts and Indian Affairs; Agriculture, Irrigation and Colonization; National Defence.
