Cristian Ionescu – The principle of the supremacy of the Constitution. Scientific basis and legitimacy of constitutional review of laws

In its case, the Constitutional Court stated that the constitution supreme hierarchy within normative acts has the consequence that laws and other normative acts must not conflict with the fundamental law.

 Supremacy of the Constitution is not only a fundamental principle of constitutional law, but of the whole political organization and system of law.

Even if it had not expressly proclaimed in the Constitution, the rule is enforced as such, being perceived in the collective consciousness of the people.
