Stressing the Rule of Law

 A state will not enjoy stablility and its citizens will not enjoy their rights if there is no rule of law. The rule of law means full obedience to the law and full abidance by its terms. It means the obedience of officials and citizens voluntarily, those who promulgate laws should respect these laws before the rest of the citizens and be an example to them.

 The rule of law means that there is no authority above the authority of law. It means that law prevents the practice of arbitrary rule that has no restraints and respects none other than democratic guarantees or immunities. It is important because it prevents selectivity from becoming a general policy in the administration. It means that the state treats citizens with complete neutrality and equality. Whenever an authority violates the law, it is held accountable.

 These principles, derived from the belief in the rule of law, should govern every action by any authority, in order to build trust between citizens and the government. These principles pave the way for the establishment of the rule of law and as a consequence guarantee the rights and freedoms of citizens. There should be a judiciary that monitors the stateís actions, ensures citizensí exorcism of their rights and their enjoyment of their freedoms.
