The decisions of the Shareholders Assembly, since its institutionalization, and during its operations, are legal acts (legal work). Just like any other legal action, the decisions of the Shareholders Assembly must be in accordance with the Constitution, the law sand good business practices. However, the decisions of the Assembly are not always in accordance with the law, or they may be illegal from legal and substantive perspective. In such case, the decision of the Shareholders Assembly shall be invalid (entirely or partially) because the conditions for its validity in accordance with the law and the statutes of the company will not be met.
