japantoday > asia Brunei sultan amends  constitution

Thursday, September 30, 2004 at 00:09 JST
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN — Brunei's Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah on Wednesday signed an amendment to the country's 1959 constitution that observers say effectively paves the way for eventual election of the country's newly restored Legislative Council.
The amendment, which reaffirms the absolute monarchy system and broadens and clarifies the scope of the sultan's powers, follows the reconvening Saturday of the Legislative Council, which had been dissolved by the sultan in 1984 when the country, a British protectorate from 1888, became fully independent.
