The judiciary

The rule of law is a fundamental prerequisite of the Constitution which rests on inalienable human rights. The rule of law is exercised, inter alia, through independent judiciary and observance of Constitution and Law by the authorities. The government system is based on the division of power into legislative, executive and judiciary. Relations between the three branches of power are based on balance and mutual control. The judiciary power is independent.
