A perfect constitution

In December the SVT sent a presentation of the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, The Nobel Peace Prize laureates 2015,and the moderator started by reading the following part of the preamble to the 2014 Tunisian Constitution:

”With a view to building a republican, democratic and participatory system, in the framework of a civil state founded on the sovereignty of the people, exercised through the peaceful alternation of power through free elections, and on the principle of the separation and balance of powers, which guarantees the freedom of association in conformity with the principles of pluralism, an impartial administration, and good governance, which are the foundations of political competition, where the state guarantees the supremacy of the law and the respect for freedoms and human rights, the independence of the judiciary, the equality of
rights and duties between all citizens, male and female, and equality between all regions.”

The two first Articles are also worth mentioning, with exception of the words about religion.

”Article 1

Tunisia is a free, independent, sovereign state; its religion is Islam, its language Arabic, and its system is republican.
This article might not be amended.

Article 2

Tunisia is a civil state based on citizenship, the will of the people, and the supremacy of law.
This article might not be amended”


The Tunisian Constitution is very much better than the Swedish Regeringsform 1974. Can anyone think of the possibility that The RF74 had a preamble as quoted above and that all pupils of the primary school should know it by heart.
