Abstract

In this paper, the author outlines current rules of procedure of the Croatian parliament, the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, the Slovenian National Assembly and the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia in order to compare provisions which regulate the procedure for preparing and adopting an authentic interpretation of the law. In addition, the author examines the parliamentary practice to determine the frequency of adopting an authentic interpretation of the law. For this purpose, the author analyses relevant provisions, parliamentary practice as well as practice of Constitutional Courts and the data published on the website of parliaments and in the official gazettes of these four states. The starting hypothesis is that, despite some specific solutions, there is a general similarity in the process of preparing and adopting an authentic interpretation of the law in these four states, followed by frequent use of authentic interpretation from all four parliaments.
