Constituting a brunch of the Public Law, Administrative law regulates how the public administration organises, functions and acts, specifically dealing with the decision-making of the administrative units of the government, which includes all services and bodies of public authority, as well as their relations with citizens and administrative bodies.
As an individual if you have a direct, immediate and present interest in any act, decision or omission of the administration that considers you, you can refer through an appeal to the Supreme Court for a declaration of invalidity taken that the act of the administration violates the Constitution or the Laws of Cyprus.
The basic sources of the Cypriot Administrative Law are:
- the Constitution in general and in particular Article 146 thereof,
- the General Principles of Administrative Law (Law N.158(I)/1999) and
- the Supreme Court case law.
