What if the rule of law principle and its discontents belong not only to common constitutional tradition of EU Member States but also belong to their particular constitutional identity?

The rule of law principle together with its discontents became one of fundamental imperatives of EU law. It derives from common constitutional traditions of all EU Member States. This community-based character of the principle has been recognized also in wider European context then the EU itself (e.g. Venice Commission Checklist).
EU law, however, must recognize not only what is common in the Member States' legal traditions. The EU is bound to respect constitutional identities of the MSs. In my paper I would like to try to answer how to deal with potentially particular elements of the principle, which could demand recognition under art. 4(2) TEU. I will also propose a way of managing such divergences with what can be labelled as “sequential model of adjudication” by the CJEU and domestic courts (mostly constitutional ones) instead of them engaging in another chapter of the “last word” battle.
