Monaco has taken on a governing role for the European Energy Award, with the support of France, Germany, Austria and Luxembourg. The appointment as a member of the governing body follows two years from the time that Monaco received the European Energy Award for its energy/climate plans.

The Environmental Department represented the Principality at the annual assembly of the European Energy Award in Lucerne, Switzerland, an event that brings together all the decision makers for the label.

Also this week, a Monegasque delegation has taken part in the two-day meeting of the Venice Commission for Democracy through Law, under the auspices of the European Union.

Professor Didier Linotte, president of the High Administrative and Constitutional Court of Monaco, told a plenary session on October 15 of the recent changes to the organisation and workings of the Principality’s Supreme Court. Professor Linotte also cited the Constitution of 1911, instituted under Prince Albert 1, as the guarantor of fundamental rights in Monaco.
