Description

Centennial of the institution of Section IV of the State Council. The State Council is a Constitutional Authority which has two functions: the first is to give juridical and administrative advice to the Public Administration; the second is to decide most cases between citizens and Public Administration. The institution of Section IV provided the State Council with Judicial powers so that citizens could appeal to an independent judge, while previously disputes with the Public Administration were settled by the same Administration.
