Abstract

The paper presents innovative judgements of the Slovenian Constitutional Court when deciding on the compliance of acts and other regulations with the Constitution. The incorporated overview indicates broadening of the classical limits of the Court’s jurisdiction, extending them to the area of legislative and judicial power as well as to the jurisdiction of other competent bodies. The paper also describes the situation preceding the broadening of the limits of the Court’s jurisdiction. This situation involves the assessment of the unconstitutionality of particular acts or procedures and the lack of reaction of the Slovenian Parliament, courts and other competent bodies to Court’s decisions.
