Members of the German Bundestag visited the Constitutional Court

14 March 2017 - President of the Croatian Constitutional Court, Dr Miroslav Šeparović, received today, together with Judge Josip Leko and Secretary General Dr Teodor Antić, a delegation of the Committee for the Elections, Immunity and Rules of Procedure of the German Parliament (Bundestag). President Šeparović firstly emphasised very good relations between the Croatian Constitutional Court and German Federal Constitutional Court, whose case-law and legal views are often cited and relied upon in the practice of the Croatian Constitutional Court. The German MPs were interested to hear about the competences of our Court in relation to political parties, the way in which the Croatian MPs can approach the Constitutional Court and about the Constitutional Court as a positive legislator, given that the German Court in its decisions often provides the legislator with the obligatory solution of some issue, thereby expanding its jurisdiction.
