The Supreme Constitutional Court has established in its rulings the agreed upon philosophy regarding interpreting the principle of the supremacy of the Constitution over the other legislation, and the authorities that emerge from it to structure the regime. This Constitution is what legislations are based on, and without which do not exist. Hence, it is not allowed for such authorities to approach the Constitution with what violates it or contradicts its rulings, but rather authorities must follow what is called “Constitutional legitimacy” which the Court interpreted in many of its rulings saying:

Constitutional legitimacy presupposes a rigid and solid Constitution whose provisions are based on the lower and higher legal rules, since the Constitution is originally represented – The closer it is to the development of democratic systems, aimed at protecting individual freedom and supporting its launching into open horizons, which are in themselves independent from the limits of power or deviation – is a key guarantee for enforcing popular will in its direction towards its ideals, especially in the area of its establishment of a system of government that is not based on the hegemony and authority of the Authority, but is working to distribute them in a democratic framework between the different branches that they undertake, to ensure their balance and transfer of control among themselves. And that the elements be responsive to development, committed to the will of all people, as the responsibility of those working in public work before it, restricted up to the intrusion of the logical limits of their inherent rights and liberties, deterring with punishment any violation or acquiescence. It is decided that whether the Constitution has reached the ultimate hopes in the field of regulating the relationship between the State and its citizens, or has overlooked or avoided some aspects, the Constitution is always above all, at the top of all degrees and layers of the legal organization, considering its limits as those of each rule that is beneath it hence can’t contradict it, which is what gave the Constitution its sovereignty as a stable fact in the collective conscience and awareness, making it an insurmountable fact echoed in the preamble of the Constitution by the Arab republic of Egypt (ARE) by proclaiming the determination of the popular will that it has given itself to defend, protect and ensure respect for, Thus, no one is to contradict the Constitutional Court’s rulings, reject, deny them ”
The House of Representatives has spared no effort – since its convening to violate the texts of the new Constitution and both explicit and implicit ignoring its provisions.
