Download a copy of the Seychelles Constitution

Although it is virtually impossible to obtain a hard copy of the Constitution of the Republic of Seychelles, you may download a scanned copy of it through the Government's web portal - [04/05/2011 Update: The website is no longer offering free downloads of the Constitution]

The local press has been frequently calling upon the public to submit their comments on the Constitution to a review board. At least now the public that has access to the internet can get a copy of the Constitution.

For those fearful of further price hikes/taxes/costs, it may please you to know that the Constitution guarantees at least 10 years of free schooling (Article 33: Right to Education) and free primary health care (Article 29: Right to Health Care) (but what exactly is "primary health care"?).

Article 91 provides that the above articles may only be altered through a referendum with at least 60% of the votes cast.
