Background

The Constitution of Romania of 1991 was adopted on November 21 and ratified by voters on December 8 that year. It enshrines the country’s democratic values and establishes Romania as a national and independent state. It also reflects its return to democracy following the downfall of communism in Romania. The current constitution replaced the Constitution of 1948, which was revised in 1952 and in 1965. The 1991 constitution was later revised in 2003 to introduce statements related to integration into the European Union.
