Finland’s century of constitutional democracy

In June 1919, the Parliament adopted the Constitution Act of the Republic of Finland, confirmed by the Regent of Finland Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim on 17 July 1919. The Constitution Act, together with the Parliament Act, Election Act and Municipal Election Act adopted earlier, are still the key constituents of the Finnish democracy. These instruments have guided the work to build our society and Finland as a whole into a modern rule of law state. 

The Constitution of Finland enacted one hundred years ago will be celebrated by various kinds of events during the summer and autumn.
