Decisions of the Parliament as an independent branch of power cannot be brought into question

The Decision of the Parliament of Montenegro on dismissal of a member of the Council of RTCG is lawful, adopted in plenum by voting and published in the Official Gazette.

This decision, as well as all other decisions of the Parliament on appointment and dismissal, cannot be subject to review before a regular court. If this interpretation by the Basic Court in Podgorica were to be accepted, then all decisions on election and dismissal of public officials adopted in the plenum by votes of the members of the Parliament could be annulled.

The non-relevant court tried in this manner to render meaningless the division of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial enshrined in the Constitution of Montenegro, and thus to attempt to tear down the state legal system.

Therefore today, within the legally defined deadline, the Protector of Property and Legal Interests, as the legal representative of the state and the Parliament in this proceeding, filed an objection against the decision of the Basic Court in Podgorica.

The objection of the Protector of Property and Legal Interests is enclosed.
