The Criminalization of Political Life

Given the lack of effective political accountability of public decisionmakers,
the legal framework governing various aspects of political life
has led, together with a system of civil accountability to the administrative
judge, to the development of a system of penal accountability
for intentional and unintentional offences. The definition of the latter
has become more precise and their repression more efficient to the
point that it has triggered a response from both law-makers and constituents.
While for the most part political personnel is now governed
by common law, only members of the Executive retain some degree of
immunity and jurisdictional privilege.
