Germany’s Constitutional Court

The Constitutional Court is often called the third chamber of the legislature in Germany. They take care of important decisions like whether commuters can deduct transport costs from taxes or whether bars can let smokers light up. Now they face their biggest decision yet. They will be the ones to decide on the Lisbon Treaty. Should they let it pass, like they are expected to do so, it could take away the power they posses. Lisbon would transfer some of the power to Luxembourg.
