Constitutional Court, GIZ Discuss Joint Cooperation

(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency)

Amman, July 6 (Petra) -- The German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ) and the Constitutional Court have organized a conference to share experiences on how to support constitutional principles and the separation of powers.
The conference's discussions focused on possible solutions to disputes between constitutional bodies, as well as the methods of settlement used by Germany's Federal Constitutional Court, according to a statement issued by the Constitutional Court on Wednesday.
Judge Fayez Hamarneh of the Jordanian Constitutional Court affirmed the Jordanian court's distinguished relations with the German Federal Constitutional Court (BVerfG).
Judge Akram Massadeh provided an overview of Jordan's constitutional history, from the 1952 Constitution to the recent constitutional amendments that resulted in the formation of the Constitutional Court, as an early recognition of the importance of the court's role in supporting Jordan's reform process.
Michael Eichberger, a retired judge from the BVerfG, explained the German Court's structure, in which each state has its own constitutional body, jurisdiction, and powers based on the law.
'Meanwhile, the Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany serves as the supreme representative of the people, with the authority to draft and sign laws, as well as refer unconstitutional laws to the Federal Constitutional Court,' he added.
