Refering matters to the Constitutional Council

Although the Socialists are distrustful of the Constitutional Council, as to the method of appointment of its members, as well as its case law, it is they who, after having voted against the 1974 reform, have most often used this institution to seek respect of parlementary procedures and the balance of powers as well as that of civil liberties and individual and collective rights.

Today the procedure is well broken in and the submission of the matter takes place according to three traditional steps decision to refer the matter, preparation of the application, filing with the Council each of which complies with a set of simple practical rules, which have been established within the Socialist group. While waiting for a major reform in the Council, the modest results of this experience have naturally led to the proposal of modifications in certain aspects in order to offer greater efficiency to the possibility open to a minority of congressmen by the new article 61 of the Constitution.
