[JURIST] The Slovak Constitutional Court [official website] Thursday delayed Slovakia's ratification of the European Constitution [JURIST news archive], approved in the country's parliament two months ago. Thirteen Slovak citizens filed a complaint [Slovensko report] with the court, arguing that the Constitution should be put to a vote in a public referendum, effectively invalidating the parliament's ratification. The court issued an additional injunction so that the constitution's ratification by President Ivan Gasparovic [Wikipedia profile] is delayed. The Constitutional Court must still decide if parliament's ratification is admissible, or whether a new constitutional bill must be passed for Slovakia's to enter another state entity, on which a vote by referendum is required.
