The parliamentary group of the strongest opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) filed a request with the Constitutional Court on Tuesday to assess whether recent amendments to the laws on defence, border control and rehabilitation of public institutions were in line with the Constitution, the SDP said in a statement.
The SDP members of Parliament believe that all three amended laws are unconstitutional, which they showed in parliamentary debates, but were ignored by the parliamentary majority, the statement said. The three laws were adopted on March 21.
The amendments to the Defence Act and the State Border Control Act allow armed forces to perform police work, while the amended Public Institutions Rehabilitation Act encroaches upon the authority of local and regional government units by imposing additional financial obligations and appointing administrative bodies, the SDP said.
