PRESS RELEASE, 11th June 2022

After being elected President of the Constitutional Court, Mr Marian ENACHE specified the main action points of his mandate. They focus on dynamism, openness, dialogue, digitalisation, efficient management and strengthening the equidistance of the Constitutional Court.


  • to boost the work of the Constitutional Court, given that there are over 8.800 cases pending before it, which are at various stages of resolution. These files are from 2018-2022, some of which have been pending for more than 4 years;
  • to contribute to the construction of a unified, clear and predictable case-law;
  • to improve the quality of decisions’ wording.


  • to make the institution more open in relation to the other public authorities and representatives of all legal professions in order to better understand the content and meaning of the Constitutional Court’s decisions;
  • to have a greater openness to the needs of the Romanian society;
  • to have a greater openness to international constitutional justice fora;
  • to have a greater openness to the media in order to better disseminate and explain the decisions of the Constitutional Court.


  • to promote a more structured dialogue between the State institutions in order to decrease the number of the legal conflicts of a constitutional nature;
  • to promote the institutional dialogue with the constitutional and European (ECHR / CJEU)


  • to continue the efforts of digitization of the Constitutional Court;
  • to implement the electronic jurisdictional register;
  • to develop a case-law module and a search engine;
  • to minimize “handwritten” registers.

All this can only be achieved with the effort, work and support of fellow judges and assistant-magistrates, as well as of the Constitutional Court’s personnel.

President Marian ENACHE stressed that, in his opinion, the Constitutional Court must constitute a real support both for the citizens, in terms of their rights and freedoms, and for the State authorities, in order to achieve their competences under the Fundamental Law of the State. It is a court of rights and freedoms and ensures the balance of the three powers in the State, being ultimately an immanent dimension of the rule of law. Therefore, it must also be perceived by society as a necessary institution in the dynamics of the Romanian legal life.

President Marian ENACHE thanks his colleagues for their trust granted on a day with a special historical significance for the Romanian constitutionalism, given that, on 11 of June 1848, in Bucharest, Gheorghe Bibescu signed the act that would become the “Constitution” of the Revolution of 1848.
