"It becomes interesting because usually the Constitutional Court only examines laws in compliance with the Constitution. This is where the central point is, which makes the Moot Court Competition on Constitutional Court Law examination full of jurisprudence, particularly state structure law, because the UGM Moot Court Team has to postulate to justify the argument that the Constitutional Court has the power to do examination on MPR/MPRS against Constitution," Dian said.
