All rights reserved. This article is about the Political Questions Doctrine, a doctrine developed by the U.S. Supreme Court as a device to avoid deciding matters deemed of political nature. The interest of this doctrine lies in that it acknowledges a field excluded from judicial power and entrusts it to the political departments of government. Ultimately, this doctrine reflects the twofold character of the Constitution: legal and political. Consequently, the doctrine implies the coexistence of a plurality of constitutional interpreters whereby the Constitution finds its proper voice, legal or political.
