Should the Right to Submit a Case to the Constitutional Council be Extended?

The issue of extending the right to submit a case to the Constitutional
Council should be raised again in view of the increasingly contentious
status of the law in the French judicial system. Indeed the immunity of an act of parliament has vanished since ordinary judges have been
granted the power to prevent its implementation in case of opposition
with an international rule. In addition, this control of international
compatibility looks very much like a process of judicial review since it
fundamentally sanctions the respect of similar norms. Therefore, the
main question is no longer, in absolute terms, whether citizens should
be granted the right to submit a case to the Constitutional council, but
rather to determine if, why, and under which conditions such a reform
would be best suited to give back to the jurisdictional control of the law
the consistency it no longer has today.
