Three of the constitution of Kazakhstan were adopted during the years 1926, 1937, 1978, and one document was adopted on January 28, 1993. However, as the first constitution of independent Kazakhstan did not comply with the democratic principles of the country, in 1995 a new Constitution was adopted through a nationwide referendum.
