In the event that the Constitutional Court finds the appeal admissible, it will request the respondent party to submit its reply or documents. Failure on the part of the respondent party to reply will not affect the proceedings before the Constitutional Court. The procedure is conducted in writing. However, the Court may decide to hold a public hearing when the issue pertinent to the adoption of a decision requires previous discussion. The appellant may present his/her case before the Constitutional court or he/she may designate a person to represent him/her. In the latter case, the appellant is advised to engage a lawyer to present the case. Your representative is obliged to produce a power of attorney.
