Dissenting opinion

Although 1958 Constitution granted it a modest role, the Constitutional Council now dominates all of our institutions since it acts as a censor of all laws when congressmen call upon it to do so. Its ail powerful rule is based on the interpretation of vague principles whose practical application ought to have been within the power of the legislators and is based also on the principle of a « Déclaration » which specifically does not authorize anyone to hold in check the collective will as expressed by law. The representatives of the nation who are generally rather zealous of the sovereignty which they have extracted from the people, have curiously aided in ratifying their own eviction. Many legal scholars have pushed them in that direction for reason which should also be clarified. The curious result at least temporarily, is a supreme oligarchy which is totally irresponsible and according to the evidence is totally without justification.
