A constitutional referendum was held in Burkina Faso on 9 June 1991. It followed a military coup in 1980, and would restore multi-party democracy. The new constitution retained the presidential system of government, created a bicameral parliament, and limited the President to two seven-year terms. It was approved by 92.83% of voters with a 48.8% turnout.[1]
