Hungarian Constitutional Court: The Ratification of the Fiscal Compact

Issue 2, pp 261-266
The Hungarian Constitutional Court has issued a judgment on the ratification of the Fiscal Compact, ruling on the legal nature of international treaties that are closely connected to the European Union, but do not qualify as primary or secondary EU law. The Constitutional Court also clarified that its case law interpreting the previous Hungarian Constitution may under certain circumstances be taken into account when interpreting the new Fundamental Law.
