The Constitutional Court will hold a preparatory hearing next week for injunction applications that aim to pause the enforcement of parliamentary oversight laws that went into effect on 26 June.

The Judicial Yuan says the preparatory hearing has been scheduled for 10 July and petitioners will be summoned to the court to present their cases.

The petitioners include the DPP legislative caucus, the cabinet, the Control Yuan and the Presidential Office. All four of those parties filed an injunction to halt enforcement of the revisions to the Law Governing the Legislative Yuan's Power and the Criminal Code.

The Judicial Yuan says representatives from the Legislative Yuan are also expected to be summoned to put forward their case in defence of the revisions.

The revisions were passed by lawmakers twice and were signed into law by President Lai Ching-te just over a week ago. The Constitutional Court agreed to review the DPP caucus' petition on 28 June.
