  On the Constitutional Charter of Serbia and Montenegro   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The constitutions of the member-republics too, particularly the 1990 Constitution of Serbia and partly the 1992 Constitution of Montenegro, were never in agreement with the federal Constitution, as well as several of the acts of the member-republics and the federation, which only fills up the picture of the situation concerning the rule of law.
After adoption in the assemblies of the member-republics, the Charter is to be passed on to the Assembly of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, to be adopted and promulgated.
Constitutional Charter is the supreme legal act of the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro, and it may not be maintained that it was drafted in haste.

The Constitutional Court considers it necessary right at the beginning of its evaluation to refer to its judgment of 15 August 2000 (Pl. ÚS 25/2000), in which it rejected a petition from a group of deputies of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the CR to annul provisions of the amending act.
In this regard the Constitutional Court believes that the petition inexactly and especially incompletely perceived the substance of the arguments used by the Constitutional Court of the CSFR in the reasoning of its judgment, and therefore cannot agree with the interpretation made by the petitioners.
The Constitutional Court considers it undoubted that the relevance of the stated presumption decreases with the passage of time from the fall of the totalitarian establishment, and therefore considers lustration legislation to be temporary, as is the case in Germany and in various countries in central and eastern Europe.

 German Law Journal - The Constitutional Significance of the Charter of Fundamental Rights*
According to the institutional adaptation approach then, the Charter's significance would be measured in terms of whether or not the Charter would put states under pressure to adapt their respective constitutional settings accordingly.
In turn, if a constitution is defined as "not static and bound to the state, but dynamic ... as a process of step-by-step constitution of legitimate ... sovereign power," (14) then the Charter's impact would be evaluated according to its part in the process of constitution-making.
The constitutional significance of the Charter therefore depends on first, the varying constitutional traditions in the current and potential EU member states (pathos or process), second, the belief of historical efficiency (yes or no), and third, the type of action applied (intervention or interaction).

When the constitution was brought to Canada from Britain in 1982, then-prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau fought to include the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Trudeau was a constitutionalist in the sense that he believed very strongly that constitutions with an entrenched charter of rights that would be protected by the courts are an important element of what it means to live in a free society," says former Ontario premier Bob Rae.
But provincial governments feared that the charter would take away some of their power, so eight premiers demanded the inclusion of a clause that allowed, with some restrictions, an exemption for provincial governments that deemed a charter right incompatible with their own laws and jurisdictions.

 DOES THE EUROPEAN UNION HAVE A CONSTITUTION ? DOES IT NEED ONE?
This means that the Treaty has superior legal value, in the same way as a Constitution does: just as the different organs of government in any State have to comply with the national Constitution, so the Member States and the Community institutions are obliged to comply with the rules of the Treaty.
