A new Rwandan constitution was adopted by referendum in 2003. The first post-war presidential and legislative elections were held in August and September 2003, respectively. The Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) led the government with goals to promote reconciliation and unity among all Rwandans through the new constitution. This meant forbidding any political activity or discrimination based on race, ethnicity or religion.
Right of return to Rwandans displaced between 1959 and 1994 was enshrined in the constitution and the constitution guarantees "All persons originating from Rwanda and their descendants shall, upon their request, be entitled to Rwandan nationality" and "No Rwandan shall be banished from the country."
Rwanda vs. Germany: Germany, who also survived a genocide, did not repeal their Weimar Constitution; instead they made it easier to change in order to take out discriminating language. Rwanda, coming from a genocide, started a fresh, new constitution to combat discrimination in the country.
