Constitutional Law in Timor-Leste
Timor-Leste has much to be proud of in the wake of highly successful, fully democratic presidential and parliamentary elections earlier this year. Over the last decade, Timor-Leste has made significant progress in building a legal system and broader state committed to the values in the Constitution.
