Constitutional Chamber says it can't be checked by Parliament.
The Constitutional Chamber is entitled to constitutional control and recognition of any norms or laws as those conflicting with the Constitution. None of other government agencies or officials, members of the Parliament among them, are in position to judge constitutionality of any law or legislative act, the Constitutional Chamber said in respond to the statement made by MP Iskhak Masaliyev today.
The decisions of the Constitutional Chamber are ultimate and can not be appealed, the Chamber reminded.
In case the Constitutional Chamber finds that the law contradicts to the Constitution, the Parliament, as a body that passed such law, will have to bring such law in line with the Constitution and decision of the Constitutional Chamber. Such requirements are formalized in the constitutional law on the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, the Chamber stated.
The Constitutional Chamber said it has acted within the scope of its competence and strictly in line with the Constitution and the constitutional law on Constitutional Chamber.
The Constitutional Chamber also said the Constitution does not give right to the Parliament, parliamentary committees and MPs to carry out any checks of the Constitutional Chamber and its acts.
MP Iskhak Masaliyev earlier today suggested to check activities of the Constitutional Chamber after he said that the Chamber exceeded its powers.
