This article discusses the problem of constituent power an constitutional reform in the perspective of the early twenty-first century, bearing in mind that the act of constituent power is original in nature prejuridica existential and ontological nature, whereas the constitutional reform is an act which is formally and materially limited by the Constitution, maintaining the continuity and identity of the Constitution, must operate within the highest principles of the constitutional order or political formula established by the original constituent. Such a perspective legitimizes judicial review of constitutional reforms and limits the consideration of these explicit and implicit, which are discussed in the text. In turn, the decision of an irreversible component of applicability of international or supranational legal systems limit the scope for action by the constituent post, creating a legal order to which the claims of an innovative new component can not affect. The work of a new original constituent power is the formal expression of a limited constitutional powers.
