Why have a constitution

Text Size a a a Print Print this page
"...Wherever Law ends, Tyranny begins"
John Locke, 1690.


Most constitutions are written down in a special document, or sometimes in a series of documents.

In Western Australia, our State Government is organised and run according to the Constitution Act of 1889, and subsequent amendments, including the Federal Constitution.

We do not have a single document, called "The Constitution of Western Australia".
