The Council for the Judiciary had to decide, whom two from among four judges of the Administrative district court, who had applied in the competition, to transfer to vacant offices of judges in the Administrative regional court. The Judicial Qualification Committee considered them all to be equally appropriate candidates. Taking into account previous work experience and opinion of the Administrative regional court, the Council for the Judiciary decided on transfer of Laura Konosonoka and Lauma Paeglkalna.  

The Council for the Judiciary also reviewed other issues related to judicial careers – on transfer of Ina Baiko, the judge of Riga city Vidzeme suburb court, to Daugavpils court upon her request and participation in internal competition to a vacant office of a judge, and on determination of a court for execution of duties to judges newly appointed by the Saeima (Parliament). Inga Lipska will be a judge in Riga district court, and Ligita Sprigule – in Tukums district court.
