Fourth Republic Era

Date Case name Holding
2020-12-13 The President v. the Majlis-ash-Shoera A treaty is part of New Batavian law, hence it must be in Dutch language as per article 6 of the Constitution. The proposed treaty between Hurmu and New Batavia is unconstitutional.
2021-04-28 The President v. the Majlis-ash-Shoera A dissolved Majlis-ash-Shoera cannot be reconvened by the Cabinet. Only the President has emergency powers. The proposed "Act succession office holders" is in part unconstitutional.
2021-12-23 The President v. the Majlis-ash-Shoera Joining the Convention on the Establishment of a Commonwealth Court does not violate the constitution, but the judicial power of the Republic, as well as the Supreme Court, will at all times continue to have primacy over this Commonwealth Court when it comes to rulings that have national effect .
