1. This type of "Constitutionality of Statutes" case refers to the constitutionality of statutes cases brought by ordinary courts, i.e., any court other than the Constitutional Court.

2. "Unconstitutional" : Used in Constitutionality of Laws cases.

3. "Unconformable" : This conclusion means the Court acknowledges a law's unconstitutionality but merely requests the National Assembly to revise it by a certain period while having the law remain effective until that time.

4. "Conditionally Unconstitutional" : In cases challenging the constitutionality of a law, the Court prohibits a particular way of interpretation of a law as unconstitutional, while having other interpretations remain constitutional.

5. "Conditionally Constitutional" : This means that a law is constitutional if it is interpreted according to the designated way.This is the converse of "Unconstitutional, in certain context". Both are regarded as decisions of "partially unconstitutional".

6. "Upheld" : This conclusion is used when the Court accepts a Constitutional Complaint which does not include a constitutionality of law issue.
