The adoption of the new Constitution marks the preliminary end of a ten year drafting and consultation process and a significant change of Swaziland’s political framework. On 26th July 2005 the King signed Swaziland’s Constitution, which entered into force on 8 February 2006. The Constitution tries to reconcile requirements of modern law with traditional Swazi law and customs and is therefore inevitably open to differing interpretation in important sections.
