One of the facettes presented to us by the report of constitutional law, and we are speaking of one of the its main hypostases, is represented by the relation established between the citizen, as governed subject, and the governants. The juridical statute of the citizen is given not only by the rights granted to it by the fundamental law, whose revindecation toward the state bodies is granted by special means of constitutional law, but also by the constitutional duties of each citizen. Romania’s constitution stipulates, along a series of rights, also a small number of fundamental duties. Those duties have to be performed with good faith. Romanian citizens, but not only them, must obey the juridical order of the Romanian state, first of all the constitutional one. They are obliged to fidelity toward the country and to defend it, as well as to support the financial effort of the state, which is made first of all in the interest of the citizen, by an equitable distribution of financial burdens. Keywords: constitutional law, citizen, the governants, fundamental law, fundamental duties
