Birth of a law
What happens if it is suspected that a law is not harmonized with the Constitution?
State institutions (for example, President of the Republic, a Ministry, etc.), institutions of territorial autonomy (for example, the Assembly of the autonomous province), or local self-government bodies (for example, Municipal Assemblies), a minimum of twenty five MPs, and the Constitutional Court itself can initiate proceedings before the Constitutional Court.
On the other hand, any legal (for example, a company) or physical entity (individual person) has the right to initiate proceedings for the assessment of constitutionality and legality.
