Government.—Panama, formerly a department of the Republic of Colombia, asserted its independence on November 4, 1903, and the de facto Government was on November 13 recognised by the Government of the United States, and soon afterwards by the other Powers. The Constitution which has been framed provides for a Chamber of Deputies of 28 members (one for every 10,000 inhabitants), which meets biennially on September 1, and for a President of the Republic, elected for 4 years, and not eligible for the succeeding term.
