Transcript THE LAW OF FEBRUARY 29th, 1920 WHEREBY THE CONSTITUTIONAL CHARTER OF THE CZECHOSLOVAK REPUBLIC IS INTRODUCED. WE, the Czechoslovak nation, desiring to consolidate the perfect unity of our people, to establish the reign of justice in the Republic, to assure the peaceful development of our native Czechoslovak land, to contribute to the common welfare of all citizens of this State and to secure the blessings of freedom to coming generations, have in our National Assembly this 29th day of February 1920 adopted the following Constitution for the Czechoslovak Republic; and in doing so we declare that it will be our endeavour to see that this Constitution together with all the laws of our land be carried out in the spirit of our history as well as in the spirit of those modern principles embodied in the idea of Self-determination, for we desire to take, outplace in the Family of Nations as a member at once cultured, peace-loving, democratic and progressive. Article I. 1. Enactments which are in conflict with the Constitutional Charter or with laws which may supplement or amend it are invalid. 2. The Constitutional Charter may be altered or amended only by laws specifically designated as Constitutional laws. Article II. A constitutional court shall decide as to whether the laws of the Czechoslovak Republic and of the Diet of Carpathian Ruthenia (Russinia) conform with Article I. Article III. 1. The Constitutional Court shall consist of seven members, two of whom shall be appointed by the High Court of Administration and two by the High Court of Justice; the remaining two members and the Chairman shall be nominated by the President of the Republic. — 19 —
