Birth of a law


Can the President of the Republic refuse to promulgate a law?

The President of the Republic can refuse to promulgate a law that has been adopted by the National Assembly. The President of the Republic returns such a law to the National Assembly for repeated discussion and voting, along with a written explanation.
The National Assembly rules on the returned law at the first upcoming session. If the National Assembly decides to vote anew on the law that the President of the Republic returned, the law must be adopted by majority vote of the total number of MPs.
If a law is adopted for the second time by majority vote of the total number of MPs, the President of the Republic is obligated to promulgate it.
