Tribunal Constitucional constitutional court
The role of the Spanish Tribunal Constitucional is to see that the 1978 Constitution is adhered to by the organs of government. It has jurisdiction in conflicts of power between the Spanish State and the Comunidades Autónomas and between the Autonomous Communities themselves, and it also has powers to safeguard the basic rights of citizens. It consists of 12 members, four nominated by Congress and by Senate, two by the Government and two by the governing body of the Spanish judiciary, the Consejo General del Poder Judicial.
