Binding nature of statutory construction by RF Constitutional Court to be expressly stated in statute
DATE: December 6, 2016 | AUTHOR: atlawyers
On November 24, 2016 RF President filed a Bill to RF State Duma, which will expressly reflect in a statute that RF Constitutional Court is entitled to construe law and that such construction shall be binding on state authorities and lower courts. Although such approach also follows from legislation already in force, the Bill will remove ambiguity and will allow to overcame situations when the Constitutional Court’s interpretation is ignored by governmental agencies or courts.
