The head of the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR), Valer Dorneanu, stated, on Wednesday, that the topic of revising the Constitution mustn't be transformed "into a permanent electoral instrument," adding that, until amendment, it must be respected "to the letter."

"It can be certainly mentioned that, in its current form, Romania's Constitution was considered, ever since its adoption and it is still considered presently, a modern, progressive constitution. As any human work, it is not perfect and cannot be perfect. On the other hand, it is not eternal, respecting however the desideratum of its perenniality that ensures the continuity of its functioning. Depending on the political, economic and social developments, it may be adapted to them, it can be revised, obviously, with respect to the limits imposed by the rigid character of our Constitution. The revision must answer to an objective necessity, not represent a personal, unilateral ambition, and it must be supported by the will of the people. The topic of revision mustn't be transformed into a permanent electoral instrument," Valer Dorneanu stated in a message sent on Constitution Day.

He added that, until revision, the Constitution must be respected "to the letter."

"The revision must be done thoroughly, with respect for procedures and especially with respect for the institutions considered rigid. Our constitution is deemed a rigid Constitution, which restricts the possibility of values and fundamental institutions being modified, including fundamental human rights, the official language, the form of government. Until its revision, which will be done in these conditions, the Constitution is in force and must be respected to the letter," said Dorneanu.

Valer Dorneanu also said that for Romania's citizens the Constitution is a "shield and guarantee" for the defense of their fundamental rights and liberties.

"The Constitution of Romania is the law of laws, it sits at the basis of the rule of law and ensures its good functioning and organization. Let us recall, even now, after 30 years, the fact that our fundamental act defines the Romanian state. Its characteristics, especially the fact that it is a rule of law state, democratic and social, which organizes itself on the principles of separation and balance of powers. For Romania's citizens, the Constitution is a shield and guarantee for the defense of their fundamental rights and liberties, entrenched at the highest European and world standard. For the state authorities and institutions, the Constitution is both a guide, as well as a mandatory code of conduct in exercising their attributions and the relations between them," said Dorneanu.
