The Indonesian Constitution of 1945 is considered the shortest in the world. It is much shorter than the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution was originally officially enacted on 18 August 1945. Every August 18, Indonesia commemorates Constitution Day.
The constitution was written in June, July, and August 1945, in the final months of the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies at the end of World War II. It was abrogated by the Federal Constitution of 1949 and the Provisional Constitution of 1950, but restored by President Sukarno's 1959 Decree. The 1945 Constitution has the highest legal authority in the country's system of government. The executive, legislative and judicial branches of government must defer to it.
