Abstract

In my paper I will show the changes in the constitutional rule of law system of the Czech Republic from the inside to provide readers the relevant information accompanied by a critical analysis of the domestic context. I argue that we should certainly not be appeased by the fact that in other Central European countries the dismantling of constitutional democracy is at a much more advanced stage, for the steps are taken slowly and usually tend to be difficult to identify at the beginning.

Keywords: Authoritarian methods of governance, decay of the traditional party system, weakening of the parliamentary form of government, the concentration and abuse of the executive power
