Serbia’s court won't review constitutionality of state of emergency declaration Izvor: N1

The Constitutional Court rejected on Friday the number of initiatives to review the decision to declare the state of emergency in Serbia without the Parliament say, N1 reported.

The Court said it also declined to rule on the legality of some measures introduced by the President Aleksandar Vucic and the Government during the state of emergency declared on March 15 and lifted on May 6 due to the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic.

The state of emergency was introduced with the co-signatures of  Vucic, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic and Speaker Maja Gojkovic because it was said the Parliament could not meet during the epidemic. It was challenged by some legal experts as declared in the violation of the Constitution and laws.

On May 6, the Assembly finally met, lifted the state of emergency and later voted to approve all decisions made by the President and the Government during a month and a half of the state of emergency.
