Throughout its history, the country has been marked by great social differences and political instability; 1989-2003 in the form of a bloody civil war, which displaced a large part of the population to neighboring countries.

Liberia - Constitution

Liberia - Constitution, The Constitution of the Republic of Liberia is from 1986 with amendments 1988 and 1991. The legislative power lies with a two-chamber parliament, consisting of the Senate with 26 members and the House of Representatives with 64. Both chambers are elected for six years in general elections. The president, who is both head of state and head of government, is elected in the same way for six years. The Civil War has so far (1997) prevented the implementation of the Constitution's provisions; since 1995, a six-member council, which also includes three representatives of the main rebel movements, has served as interim management.
