CONSTITUTION AND GOVERNMENT. Panama, formerly a department of the Republic of Colombia, asserted its independence on 3 Nov. 1903, and the de facto Government was on 13 Nov. recognized by the Government of the U.S.A., and soon afterwards by the other Powers. In 1914 Colombia agreed to recognize the independence of Panama. This treaty was ratified by the U.S.A. and Colombia in 1921, and on 8 May 1924 diplomatic relations between Colombia and Panama were established.
