“Fast Track” legislative process is not uncostitutional

in BreakingNews @en by

The Colombian Constitutional Court has decided that the shortened legislative process, if it is used limited to applicative laws of the peace agreement between the government and the FARC, is not unconstitutional. This means that even now the government can push through laws related to the peace agreement in mid of the time that’s constitutionally scheduled, the President may adopt acts with force of law on the subject, the Court has nevertheless left the role of final decision-maker and he made it clear that as far as the “Fast Track” increases the powers of government and the President they can not replace the Parliament.
