1963 Yugoslav Constitution

The 1963 Yugoslav Constitution was the third constitution of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It came into effect on April 7, 1963.

The parliamentary Federal Assembly (Skupština) was divided into one general chamber, the Federal Chamber, and four chambers given specific bureaucratic responsibilities. The constitution directed that individual republics be represented only in the Chamber of Nationalities, a part of the Federal Chamber.[1]

President Josip Broz Tito retained his position as president of the federation but renounced his state position as president of the Federal Executive Council, a change that further separated party and state functions. The 1963 constitution also introduced the concept of rotation, which prohibited the holding of higher or lower level executive positions for more than two four-year terms. Moreover, it extended human and civil rights and established constitutionally guaranteed court procedures.[1]
