The Committee on Constitutional Affairs determined the answers to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Srpska in two cases
Today, the Committee for Constitutional Arrairs of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska determined the answer to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Srpska in case U-24/20, by which the lawyer from Banja Luka Dario Sandić requested initiating proceedings to assess the constitutionality and legality of the Decision on declaring a state of emergency for the Republic of Srpska.
In response, the Committee determined that this initiative was not founded, that it was a matter of misinterpretation of the Constitution of the Republic of Srpska, as well as the disputed Decision.
The Committee considers that this interpretation of Article 70, paragraph 3 of the Constitution is arbitrary, incomplete and erroneous, and the conclusion is legally unfounded and logically incorrect.
The Committee also determined the response to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Srpska in case U-12/20, which concerns the initiative for reviewing the constitutionality of Article 191, paragraph 5 and Article 127, paragraph 2 of the Law on Demeanors of the Republic of Srpska.
The meeting of the Committee was chaired by the President of the Committee and the President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska, Nedeljko Čubrilović.
