Estonia's top court merges municipalities' administrative reform-related applications into one proceeding ({{commentsTotal}})

The Constitutional Review Chamber of the Supreme Court of Estonia had decided to merge the applications of a number of municipalities requesting the top court conduct a constitutional review of the Administrative Reform Act into one proceeding.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court's Constitutional Review Chamber discussed the applications filed by the councils of the municipalities of Kõpu, Juuru, Abja, Emmaste, Illuka, Järvakandi, Kambja, Kõo, Käina, Leisi, Loksa, Luunja, Lüganuse, Mäetaguse, Nõo, Pala, Pöide, Pühalepa, Rakke, Tudulinna, Vaivara and Ülenurme as well as the town of Loksa.

The chamber decided to merge the three applications requesting a constitutional review of the Administrative Reform Act into a single proceeding.

The aforementioned municipalities are requesting the top court to judge whether the mandatory merger of municipalities and the requirement for a municipality to have a population of at least 5,000 is consistent with the Constitution.

The first to request a constitutional review procedure from the Supreme Court was the Viljandi County's Kõpu Municipality, which filed their application regarding the matter in early June.
