The selection of candidates for the position of the Prosecutor General will henceforth be the responsibility of the Judicial Council

On March 11, amendments to the Law “On Judicial Power” and the “Office of the Prosecutor Law” come into force, which changes the procedure for selecting and appointing the Prosecutor General. The Prosecutor General will henceforth be appointed not on the proposal of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, but on the proposal of the Judicial Council.

It is considered necessary to maintain a unified competition for the position of a judge of the Supreme Court

Having supported the amendments to the Constitutional Court Law and the State Civil Service Law developed to ensure the independence of the Constitutional Court and to strengthen the status of a judge of the Constitutional Court, the Judicial Council does not support the amendments to the law “On Judicial Power”, which provide for judges of the Constitutional Court to apply for the position of a judge of the Supreme Court outside the established order.
