The legal system of Cyprus has its basis set on the English legal system. After the Accession of Cyprus to the EU (European Union) in 2004, the country’s Constitution was amended for purposes of ensuring that the European law had authority over national legislation and the Constitution. In order to ensure that there are no doubts on the superiority of the European law over the Constitution and national legislation, the constitution was amended with the Fifth Constitutional Amendment no. 127(1) of 2006.
This amendment introduced a new article (Article 1(A) to the Constitution of Cyprus. The amendment provides that there is no constitutional provision that overrules any legislation, measures or acts that are enacted by the Republic and which are obligatory as a European Union member state. In addition to this, the amendment also provides that no provision should hinder Directives, Regulations as well as other binding provisions or a legislation enacted by the EU from having legal effect in Cyprus.
The Supreme Court of Cyprus enjoys exclusive jurisdiction to address all types of recourses filed against an act, decision or exclusion of any organ, person or authority that exercises administrative or executive authority. A decision, omission or act may be annulled if there is proof that it creates abuse of any power that is entrusted to the administrative organ or contradicts the Constitution’s provisions.
