This book deals with the constitutional law of the two Member States that acceded to the European Union in 2007: Bulgaria and Romania. It is complementary to 'Constitutional Law of 15 EU Member States', edited by Lucas Prakke and Constantijn Kortmann, and to 'Constitutional Law of 10 EU Member States: The 2004 Enlargement', edited by Constantijn Kortmann, Joseph Fleuren and Wim Voermans.
Together the three volumes cover the constitutional law of all present Member States of the European Union. All of the volumes are based on the same format. Each chapter, written by one or two experts, starts with a sketch of the country's constitutional history as an indispensable background to a proper understanding of the relevant constitution as it operates today.
The subsequent outline of the constitutional system deals with the sources of constitutional law, the head of state, the government, parliament, executive-legislative relationships, the legislative process, the parliamentary scrutiny of government activity, the electoral system, political parties, election results and governments, the judiciary, regional and local government, and fundamental rights. The chapters conclude with a short bibliography.
