Are you saying that accountabilities do not limit other roles ? where is written this thing in the constitution  ? 

Yes, that's correct. An accountability only tells you what you can expect from the role that has the accountability, but has no impact on other roles. 

The authority to act comes from §1.3, unless limited by a Domain:

1.3 Authority to Act

As a Partner assigned to a Role, you have the authority to execute any Next-Actions you reasonably believe are useful for enacting your Role’s Purpose or Accountabilities.

However, you cannot exert control or cause a material impact within a Domain owned by another Role or another sovereign entity, unless you have their permission. The authority granted in this paragraph is further limited by Section 2.1.3.
