The Committee on the Constitution has agreed that the focus of its examination of the Government's handling of the corona crisis will be on how government power has been exercised from a broader, constitutional, perspective.

The Committee on the Constitution has started to plan its examination of the Government's handling of the corona crisis. The parties in the Committee have agreed that the examination should not be limited to the reports submitted to the Committee, but should focus on the exercise of government power from a broader, constitutional, perspective.

The exact focus will be discussed in greater detail when the Committee meets again after the summer.

The Committee's examination of the Government is part of the Committee's parliamentary control tasks under Chapter 13 of the Instrument of Government.
