French Constitutional Laws of 1875
The constitution laws could be roughly divided into three laws:
- The Act of 24 February 1875 – The organization of the Senate
- The Act of 25 February 1875 – The organization of government
- The Act of 16 July 1875 – The relationship between governments
This was the only time that a republic in France was not defined or organized by a genuine constitution. The laws were legally revoked only during the promulgation of the French Constitution of 1946.
