Constitutionalism, Constitutional History, Albania 1912-1938, Constitutional Acts, Statutes


The development of constitutionalism in Albania from 1912 until 1938 is characterized by the approval of four constitutional acts: Organic Statute of Albania in 1914, Statute of Lushnja in 1920, Basic Statute of the Republic of Albania in 1925, and Basic Statute of the Monarchy of Albania in 1928. These statutes have interrupted the tradition of applying Sharia Law in Albania, by applying models of the most advanced constitutions of the time, such as the monarchies and parliamentary republics of Western Europe and the United States. These acts have been approved in special political circumstances elaborated throughout the paper.
