The Constitutional Trial

A dispute regarding the implementation of a legislative measure, a
judgment on this dispute based on the principles of the public hearing
of both parties and the impartiality of the court, a decision bearing the
authority of final judgment : all the ingredients of a trial are present.
They can be improved, complemented, developed, and in this respect
one should stress once more that the mode of nomination of the constitutional
judges is no longer adapted to their judicial functions. Yet,
neither the Court of Cassation nor the Council of State have at one go
respected all the formal and material criteria of the trial. Indeed, what
is happening at the Constitutional Council is a real constitutional trial,
without inverted commas.
