Question by Lamont!: How do you interpret the Constitution using these 3 ideas?
Constructional, Stewardship and Prerogative

Stewardship theory is that elected politicians have the power to do what the constitution grants them and more as long as they don’t do any think the constitution says they cant do. This interpretation is moderate when it comes to the constitution
Prerogative theory is that elected politicians do that the constitution grants them and more and can go against what the constitution says if needed to better represent the people that elected them. This interpretation is lenient when it comes to the constitution.
