The courts shall exercise judicial power in the Republic of Belarus
(Article 109 of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus)
Supervision of the constitutionality of enforceable enactments of the state shall be exercised by the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Belarus
(Article 116 of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus)

The Constitutional Court safeguards the supremacy of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus and its direct action, exercises the constitutional control of normative legal acts of the state bodies, and strengthens legality in norm-creating and law-enforcement. Thus one of the main tasks of the Constitutional Court is a protection of constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens.

For the first time on the post-Soviet space the Constitutional Court was given the authorities on the obligatory preliminary constitutional control of all laws adopted by Parliament at the stage before the President signing. Thereby the vector of the further development of the constitutional justice is directed on prevention of the infringements of constitutionality in norm-creating, elimination of possible negative social consequences of the laws contradicting to the Constitution.
