Constitutional supremacy in any country that has a constitution derived from the westminster model can be invariably described as such. However I would suggest to you that such an assessment is shallow.

Any and every sovereign state has the right and means to alter its constitution and or to interpret it in accordance with its own needs and in to fit with prevailing conditions. It may be a bit more difficult for instance where the articles of the constitution of a country are 'set in stone' so to speak. The US and some other countries perhaps are examples of this. On the other hand countries like Australia and Malaysia to some extent still have constitutional conventions which are subject to interpretation. Canada and India have bill of rights which guarantee certain freedoms under their constitution which others like Australia and Malaysia are at liberty to lend interpretation to depending on each given situation.

I trust my assumptions are not out of date as I am writing on the run.
