Home Argentine Constitution of the Argentine Nation

Constitution of the Argentine Nation

Its objective: to establish the national union, to strengthen justice and consolidate internal peace.


On May 1, 1853 the deputies of the provinces (except those of  Buenos Aires ), meeting in  Santa Fe , sanctioned the  National Constitution , in response to a need that arose after the  Revolution from May . Its aim was to establish national union, strengthen justice and consolidate internal peace.

 1994 Constitutional Reform 

The normative postulates of our  Constitution  underwent their last reform in 1994; the draft of which emerged from the consensus between the two majority party forces at that time: the  Justicialist Party  and the  Radical Civic Union  .

As a whole, the reform did not change the main contents of the 1853  Constitution  , although it changed part of the institutional structure and incorporated new rights, based on the recognition of constitutional hierarchy in international human rights treaties.

The agreement, later converted into Law 24.309, included a  core of basic coincidences , such as: direct election of the  President and Vice-President  and inclusion of ballottage; direct election of three senators (of whom one should represent the minority); direct election of the  Head of Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires ; reduction of the presidential term to four years; only possibility of presidential re-election; creation of the post  of Chief of Cabinet of Ministers ; creation  of the Council of the Judiciary ; Senate agreement by an absolute majority for the appointment of judges of the  Supreme Court .
