Jurisdiction & Proceedings
:::

A petition by the people that entreats the Constitutional Court to issue a uniform interpretation regarding a statute or a regulation is inadmissible unless the petitioner:

  1. has exhausted all levels of ordinary judicial remedies;
  2. believes that, in respect of the same legal provision in a statute or a regulation, a conflict exists between the interpretation rendered by a final court decision that finds against her or him and a prior one rendered by another court of last resort in a different adjudication system; and
  3. has lodged the petition with the Constitutional Court within the three-month peremptory period after the service of the final court decision.
