The Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus and in general the Cypriot legal order as was originally established following the creation of the Cypriot state in 1960 had a clear orientation towards maintaining the balance between the Greek and Turkish communities, in the way of maintaining the balance of power between in the two communities. The rationale of mutual control between the two communities, on which the Constitution was based clearly worked, from the beginning, to the detriment of the implementation of a substantial rule of law. With the deviation of the constitutional order, which followed the departure of the Turkish community from the state apparatus and the consequent application of the "law of necessity", the issue of the lack of state structures, which are clearly based on the principles of transparency and in which functional mechanisms of control and mutual control of state powers exist, became more than obvious.
