O potrzebie ustawowego uregulowania trybu rozpatrywania petycji
On the need for statutory regulation of the procedure for the consideration of petitions
Languages of publication
The article provides a comprehensive analysis of the right of petition and the need for regulation of this field by statute. The author examines the right of petition both in historical context and by way of reference to the existing regulations and views of legal theorists. She comes to an unequivocal conclusion that there is need for statutory regulation of the right of petition, that would lead to an elevation of the status of that right which, in practice, has been reduced to the right to make requests and complaints in the form that existed prior to the adoption of the Constitution. Moreover, a separate law devoted to the right of petition would encourage citizens to make use of this form of dialogue with the government and make it possible to comprehensively regulate the issue of petition and to ultimately solve many problems with establishing the mutual relations between petitions, complaints and requests.
