Part I of this article will consider the 1977 Constitution in a general manner, focusing on the debate over whether it represents an advancement of the rule of law, or an embodiment of arbitrary party power. Part II will focus on the validity of the Soviet model of federal republican sovereignty. Throughout, the experience and constitutions of other nations will be drawn upon for comparison and analysis.
