Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu said on Thursday that the Government and Parliament should be more prudent in their legislating activity and make sure the Constitution is observed, mentioning also that too frequently in the past years has the Constitutional Court been sought for sorting out political conflicts.
"I reiterate the importance of the Constitutional Court for the proper functioning of the judiciary and, implicitly, for the evolution of our society. Too often in the past few years have we been in the situation to turn to the Constitutional Court for the settlement of political conflicts or issues which are normally resolved by political negotiation, not by constitutional mediation. I hope we, politicians, and all of us as a society have matured in these years, and I hope this will also reflect in the causes you judge," the PM said at the end of the international conference "A quarter of a century of constitutionalism", organized on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Constitutional Court.
He called on authorities to act prudently in the law-making process.
According to Grindeanu, "the Constitution of Romania adopted in 1991 and revised in 2003 was undoubtedly the cornerstone for building a constitutional framework based on liberty, political pluralism, democracy, respect for human rights and respect for the rule of law."
