Summary/Abstract: The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Macedonia holds within its authority the duty to analyze the constitutionality and legality of bylaws. Being the handy practical instruments of further regulating the general legal principles, rights and freedoms of citizens they may show some inconsistencies and/or non-compliance with the more general constitutional and legal frame. Some illustrations of such examples are the several that are commented in this article, coupled with the theoretical basic description of the nature and role of these acts in the legal system in general. Special attention while drafting these acts, should be dedicated to the way in which a certain right or obligation of the citizen is stipulated, in order to preserve the harmonious link to all other higher legal acts, as well as not to exceed the already given limits or powers of the enacting body.
