Constitutional Laws of 1875

In France, a series of fundamental laws that, taken collectively, came to be known as the constitution of the Third Republic.

It established a two-house legislature (with an indirectly elected Senate as a conservative check on the popularly elected Chamber of Deputies); a Council of Ministers responsible to the Chamber; and a president with powers resembling those of a constitutional monarch. It left untouched many aspects of the French governmental structure.
