Процессуальные и содержательные аспекты деятельности органов конституционной (уставной) юстиции субъектов Российской Федерации: опыт Республики Карелия
This article discusses the procedural and substantive aspects of the activities of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Karelia as a body of regional constitutional (statutory) justice. The authors come to the conclusion that the activities and decisions of the Court reflect the most important issues of the social and political agenda of both the relevant subject of the Russian Federation and the federal state as a whole. In the procedural aspect, the activity of the Court is characterized by the possibility of considering appeals of citizens through abstract normative control, which expands the possibilities of protecting their constitutional rights. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the principles of the rule of law, justice and equality serve as constitutional criteria for evaluating legal regulation, which, among other things, makes it possible to remove from the legal field the acts that violate constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens but are not subject to federal constitutional control.
