PREZIDENT REPUBLIKY A ZÁKONODÁRSTVÍ V ČR
The president of republic and legislation in Czech Republic
Languages of publication
The president of the republic is not only the authority of executive power, whose competence is executive completely. As the head of the state he intervenes in the legislative power, where he has significant rights. The most important right is the right of veto, which is by the Constitution regulated as a suspensive, but toward the end of electoral term of the House of Deputies it usually becomes the absolute veto. There is a serious fault in the Contitution – the Constitution doesn’t solve the creation of acts, including constitutional acts, during serious threat to state, especially during the war. The example of president’s Beneš decrees proves that during the occupation of the state territory it is impossible to guarantee working Parlament as a great collective authority. The state continuity, including legislative and constitutional competence, is performed by the head of the state, although the Constitution doesn’t know such a competence.
