New Zealand constitution

New Zealand does not have a document called the constitution. Rather it draws together an "unwritten" or "Westminster-style" constitution from various acts (including various English acts predating the English colonisation of the country eg Magna Carta), judicial precedent (case law), prerogative powers, conventions, political custom and public international law.
