The object of the current dissertation is the microsystem of the suspension of injunctions and sentences. This procedure allows the President of the Court to suspend the effects of a judge´s decision. He can do so, if he decides that this decision violates the order, health, security or public budget, until passed into res judicata. The institute´s lack of definitions entails a wide discretion of the Court´s President. This allows for arbitrary decision making. Through a historical analysis of the Institute, in association with an analysis of the Constitution of Brazil, we can conclude that the Institute is based on a principle which is currently rejected by the modern doctrine and infringes the basic principles of democracy.
