Abstract/Citation: Enumerates the powers of the sovereign (and the governor general as his representative) the executive (Ministers of the Crown and Executive Council) and the legislature (House of Representatives, Parliament). Proclaims the legislative independence of New Zealand from the United Kingdom. Replaces the British enactments on the basis of which legislative independence was established (the New Zealand Constitution Act 1852, the Statute of Westminster 1931, and the New Zealand Constitution (Amendment) Act 1947).
