Conventionality and constitutionality

The precedence given by the organic legislator to the priority preliminary
ruling on the issue of constitutionality over questions of conventionality
that could be raised either with the judge dealing with the
substance of the case, the Council of State or the Court of Cassation,
has been the source of the initial difficulties in implementing the new
mechanism. In particular, the compatibility of the arrangement with
the requirements of the primacy of Community law and of the possibility
/ obligation of the reference for a preliminary ruling has led to
contradictory interpretations which have produced antinomic rulings
by the Court of Cassation, the Constitutional Council, the Council
of State and the Court of Justice of the European Union. However, it
seems possible to reconcile the different approaches under certain conditions
without challenging the logic of the French version of the priority
preliminary ruling on the issue of constitutionality.
