The defender of Executive Power

Although it has now faded behind other functions, the basic mission assigned to the Constitutional Council by its creators, was the defense of the executive power. As a result of their development and because they were subject to the test of a reality different from that which they were conceived, the mechanisms which should have permitted it to fulfill its mission, have functioned with a different sort of efficiency. These mechanisms have also resulted in a fundamental evolution in the Council’s mission and have made it the arbitrator of the various political forces rather than the defender of the executive power, even against itself.
