Summary/Abstract: The true value and firmness of the 2006 Constitution will be visible shortly after the commencement of its enactment. In order for its liberal-democratic orientation to be fully expressed, maintained, and developed, such that it could stabilize the legal and political system of the Republic of Serbia, the legislature and constitutional judiciary will have to fully support it through their authoritative interpretations. The Constitution has established the democratic system, but that system cannot survive by itself. Depending on the enactment of the Constitution, which can be fully adequate, arbitrary, or selective, legitimacy can persevere, but also fail, as was the ease with the previous Serbian Constitution, Lack of legitimacy cannot be compensated by a demagogical interpretation of the Constitutionlity.
