Abstract

This article is based on the notion that judicial review is an integral institution in any country. The ability of the courts to exercise judicial review is thought to be influenced by the political culture of the country. To theoretically reinforce perceptions on judicial review the theory of institutionalism is employed. Specifically, this paper mentions two approaches to institutionalism: rational choice institutionalism and historical institutionalism. Ultimately, the tenets of historical institutionalism are the backbone of this article.
