Mexico City, Feb 6 (EFE).- A commission has been created to mark the centennial of the Mexican Constitution, Government Secretary Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said.
The commission will organize a variety of events from now until Feb. 5, 2017, when Mexico will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the promulgation of the constitution, Osorio Chong said.
The secretary made the announcement on Tuesday, the 96th anniversary of the constitution's promulgation.
Mexico's current constitution was promulgated on Feb. 5, 1917, by President Venustiano Carranza, officially ending the revolution that had started seven years earlier.
The commission will meet at least twice a year and adopt resolutions by consensus.
The body will have a technical secretary, with the post being filled by the director of the National Historical Research Institute of the Revolutions in Mexico.
