Until March 2020, Republic of North Macedonia had no experience with the implementation of the constitutional provisions regulating the issue about state of emergency. The spread of the covid-19 virus has imposed the need for a state of emergency.

Unfortunately, the decisions of the Constitutional Court did not help much in their resolution.
