A collective presidency existed in Yugoslavia at the federal level since amendments to the constitution in 1971. On 21 February 1974 a new federal Constitution was adopted which reaffirmed the collective federal presidency chaired by the President of the Presidency. The constituent republics adopted the same system in new constitutions of their own.
