A ten-year campaign to acquire the vote culminated in the case of Matthews v. Denise Matthews, a British Citizen resident in Gibraltar, claimed that the exclusion of the Gibraltar electorate from enfranchisement in the European Parliamentary elections was a breach of human rights. The European Court of Human Rights decided in her favour, ruling that the European Parliament formed a part of Gibraltar's legislature and held that the UK was bound by its conventions to secure the right for the people of Gibraltar to elect the European Parliament.
Politics of Gibraltar
Gibraltar is included in the South West England Region for the purposes of European Parliament elections, and first voted in the election. The Conservative Party took There were some differences between the draft constitution and the one to which the UK agreed, namely that the Governor's title would remain unchanged, and that the Police Authority would remain independent of the Government of Gibraltar.
Gibraltar Constitution Order and Gibraltarian constitutional referendum, In December Gibraltar was granted a new constitution, providing a modern constitutional relationship between Gibraltar and the United Kingdom, not based on colonialism.
As Peter Caruana and I said in our joint statement on Monday, the new Constitution provides for "a modern and mature" relationship between the UK and Gibraltar. I do not think that this description would apply to any relationship based on colonialism. The proposal was put to the people in a referendum and approved.
The constitution took effect in and 29 January declared a public holiday in celebration. Integration with the UK[ edit ] Various groups in Gibraltar have campaigned in favour of a far closer relationship with Britain, in the form of devolved integration or incorporation into the Britain itself. This is similar to the offer made to Malta inunder which Malta would be represented in the British House of Commons and be placed under the Home Officewhile retaining internal self-government.
One of Spain's arguments in rejecting comparisons between Gibraltar and these territories is that they are part of Spain, whereas Gibraltar is a British overseas territory and not part of the UK.

The Committees regularly roll out their 'consensus resolution'  which: The commitment of the British Government is not to hold the talks envisaged by the above resolution without the consent of the Gibraltarians. The [British] Government will never — "never" is a seldom-used word in politics — enter into an agreement on sovereignty without the agreement of the Government of Gibraltar and their people.
In fact, we will never even enter into a process without that agreement.

Division between organs of parliament[ edit ] The UK Parliament creates law through the authority of the Queen-in-Parliamentsecuring the support of at least the House of Commonsand usually the House of Lords as well — although since the passing act of the Parliament Act this has not been necessary.
The power to create primary legislation has also been devolved to Scottish and Welsh parliaments and to government ministers and local authorities to create secondary legislation.
The Council and the Commission of the European Union also exercise executive power, as do devolved governments. It oversees both public and private law through civil and criminal courts and a variety of tribunals. This is not in itself a measure of efficiency or good process, or what the function actually entails. Keeping all three roles separate is seen as both theoretically and practically impossible.
This led Walter Bagehot to declare the "nearly complete fusion" of the roles in the nineteenth century. Other writers have stressed that the harmonisation of the legislature and executive does not preclude their distinctiveness. The crossover in personnel is effectively limited to ministers. A Select Committee report suggested: Between andthe government had a safe majority which made the scrutiny of the government more difficult, although not impossible.
The government could rely on its legislation being passed, although in some cases this did not happen.
Legal rules should be relatable to the Acts of Parliament on which they are based, but this is not always possible. Proper scrutiny of government actions under secondary legislation is needed to prevent abuse. In England and Wales, judges in superior courts cannot be arbitrarily dismissed by the executive, instead serving whilst in "good behaviour".
Most members of tribunals cannot be dismissed by members of the government department of which they form part. This is important in cases of judicial review and other judicial methods of preventing government abuse of power.
