The Constitution of Yemen was ratified by popular referendum on May 16, 1991.[1] It defines the republic as an independent and sovereign Arab and Islamic country and establishes sharia, or Islamic law, as the basis of all laws.[1] In February 2001, several amendments were passed by national referendum extending the presidential term to seven years and the parliamentary term to six years and increasing the size and authority of the Shura Council.

Due to the 2011–2012 Yemeni revolution, President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Al-Hadi is expected to draft a new constitution in the 2012-2014 period.[2]
