On November 26, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the citizens of the Republic on the Constitution Day.
The congratulation states, in particular:
I sincerely congratulate you on the state holiday - the Constitution Day of the Republic of Abkhazia!
The Constitution of the Republic of Abkhazia was adopted on November 26, 1994. It solidified the results of the national fight of liberation of the Abkhazian people, the main stage of which was the Patriotic War of 1992-1993.
Despite all the hardship and difficulties that our multinational people had to endure, we defended our inalienable right to self-determination. The Constitution defined Abkhazia as a sovereign, democratic and constitutional state.
The strict and unwavering compliance with the constitutional rules and the defence of the Constitution are the conditions for the formation of a qualitatively new legal system and the establishment of a stable political system.
We will consistently implement the ideas and principles laid down in the Constitution and fight to implement it in practice, so that every citizen of our state would feel, not only in words, but in deeds that his and her constitutional rights and liberties are protected by the state.
