Laws can be ordered in general-specific relation. Specific law applies first, and then general law applies where there is no related provision in the specific law.

Currently, there is no way to express the relations of statutes. This property should be created to relate statutes in general-specific order. – Kwj2772 (talk) 01:47, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

    • Relation covered by the property I proposed is near to relation of general principles and exceptions, rather than whole-part. That means, if there is a relevant provision in a specific law, the provision in the specific law applies directly and provisions in general laws are excluded in application. Conversely, if there is no relevant provision in the specific law, provisions in general laws are applied mutatis mutandis. That's why part of (P361) is not applicable. – Kwj2772 (talk) 00:49, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
