Since February, delegates representing all aspects Colombian society have been meeting in an attempt to revise the Colombian Constitution of 1886. Attempts at constiuttional reform have been made by the Colombian Congress in recent years, but each failed to result in the establishment of a government regime capable of establishing and effectuating the rule of law. Moreover, unlike past reform efforts, the present effort is in the hands of a separately elected assembly called for in a referendum voted on during the presidential elections in May 1990.
