It has the power to annul, to declare unconstitutional and suspend laws, decrees and ordinances infringing on Title II of the Constitution (Articles 8 to 32 on the rights and freedoms of the Belgians), on Articles 170 and 172 (legality and equality of taxes) and 191 of it (protection of foreign nationals), on the power-defining rules between those authorities, provided for in the Constitution and in laws on institutional reform and on Article 143, ยง 1, of the Constitution (the principle of federal loyalty).
