From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Constitution of Yemen was ratified by popular referendum on May 16, 1991.[1] It defines the republic as an independent and sovereign Arab and Islamic country and establishes sharia, or Islamic law, as the basis of all laws.[1] In February 2001, several amendments were passed by national referendum extending the presidential term to seven years and the parliamentary term to six years and increasing the size and authority of the Shura Council.[1]
