Glossary: nonparticipatory methodology

DEFINITION:
Unlike the ""start from scratch"" methodology used in 1987-88 (involving twenty-four subcommittees, eight committees, including a drafting committee, two rounds of floor votes, and extensive popular hearings in the committee stages), the nonparticipatory methodology in the constitutional revision made in 1993-94 was very streamlined, with no hearings or committees. It involved only the reporters reports article by article, including or excluding the proposed changes, and then a floor vote.
