Abstract/Citation: The Constitution was promulgated in the Constitution of Seychelles (Third Republic) (Promulgation) Notice, 1993 (S.I. No. 38 of 1993). The Schedule of this Notice contains the Constitution of the Republic of Seychelles, approved by more than 60 per cent of the votes cast by the people of Seychelles at a referendum held in June 1993. It is divided into XVI Chapters concerning citizenship, fundamental human rights and freedoms, states of emergency, remedies, the Presidency, the Executive, the Legislature, electoral matters, the judiciary, the Ombudsman, public service appeals, finance, the police force, and the defence forces. Included among fundamental human rights and freedoms are freedom from slavery or forced labour, as well as freedom of expression, assembly and association, and in particular the right to join trade unions. In addition, the Constitution grants the right to health care, education, shelter, work and social security, and protects the rights of minors, working mothers and the aged and disabled.
