Two Constitutions (1989 – 2011) Continuity and Discontinuity

Successful constitution-making takes place at pivotal moments in the lives of societies and nations, when an experience is shared by the whole society. The constitution of 1989, which introduced the rule of law in Hungary, is one such constitution. The constitution of the revolutionary regime change which set public law, social life and even the economy on the path to democracy is worth protecting.

Through Constitutional Court rulings – primarily those of the first Constitutional Court – and legal practice, the skeleton of that constitution has developed into a living legal system over the years. We must make sure that this Constitution is preserved and that it continues to provide a frame of our lives in the future.. Should it now be ruined, we will have to rebuild it.
