Abstract

Abstract: The article examines the Cherry/Miller 2 judgment which declared unlawful, void and with no effect the long prorogation of Parliament. From a continental point of view, the Supreme Court resolved a conflict between executive and legislative power stating that the prorogation prerogative is limited by two constitutional principles: parliamentary sovereignty and the responsible government. Reference to the second - traditionally considered the constitutional convention founding the parliamentary government - is full of consequences because it gives a legal face to a political rule allowing the judicial review of the relations between Parliament and Government so far considered not justiciable.


Keywords: Brexit; Royal prerogative; Prorogation; Parliamentary sovereignty; Responsible
Government.
