The rule of law, found in every democratic society including New Zealand, is essentially the authority the law has on every citizen, regardless of their status. It has been defined as a doctrine that holds the law above all citizens in an equal manner, and even government officials are accountable to the ordinary courts of law. (“Wikipedia”, 2020)

Adopted by The General Assembly on 30th November 2012. Ratified by New Zealand
