Acción pública de inconstitucionalidad en el Estado colombiano
Public action of unconstitutionality is an instrument that allows the citizen to participate in the formation of the political and legal order, which makes it easier to build a civil society that cares about maintaining constitutional mandate, thus generating the development of legal policies and categories in a Constitutional State.
The present work therefore seeks to determine how rigorously the Court has applied the criteria of clarity, certainty, specificity, relevance and sufficiency, as well as the effects this has had on the national legal order, for which it is conducted a field study of the public action claims of Unconstitutionality based, inadmitd and rejected from 1992 to July 31, 2019, as well as the imadmisory and rejection orders in the Constitutional Court.
Since its inception, the demand for unconstitutionality has kept its nature unsensed: the manifestation of political rights, a mechanism of direct control of laws and a form of participatory democracy. The Constitution of 1991 entrusted the Constitutional Court with the guardianship of the supremacy and integrity of the Political Charter, and within its powers is the knowledge of public action of unconstitutionality.
