Constitutional justice in France, yesterday, today, tomorrow
A magistrate and investigating judge in charge of terrorism in the 1980s, Jean-Louis Debré was elected Deputy of the Eure in 1986 and was municipal councillor of Evreux between 1989 and 1995. Minister of the Interior in Alain Juppé’s government from 1995 to 1997, he was later re-elected to the Eure and became Mayor of Evreux in 2001. He was the President of the National Assembly from 2002 to 2007, the date upon which he was appointed President of the Constitutional Council.
This French institution, set up in 1958, rules on whether proposed laws and certain regulations conform with the Constitution before they enter into force and ensures the regularity of elections and referendums. Guaranteeing rights and freedoms, the Constitutional Council has developed and the scope of its activities has increased, in particular since the amendment to the Constitution on 23rd July 2008. Jean-Louis Debré looks back at the various phases of such change and questions the prospects.
