Summary: The Pasto Constitutional Charter published in 1856 stipulates the laws that regulate the provincial and central government’s legislature. It outlines the rules for the executive and judiciary powers, the state’s financial institutions, and the construction of infrastructure and education in the province.
Historical Notes: The Pasto Province was located in the Colombian south, between Popayán and the territories of the Quito Presidency at the beginning of the 19th century. At the time of the revolution for independence in Nueva Granada, Pasto’s political and economic elite declared themselves in opposition to the republican uprising and took a radical pro-monarchical position. Pasto drastically resisted the rule of the republican government until 1822, and the province continued to be a politically contested territory for various reasons during the 19th century.
