Supreme Court Selection: Preliminary Results

On June 6 the High Qualification Commission of Judges started final consideration of candidates to the Supreme Court judges, who received negative opinions from the Public Integrity Council (PIC).

As of June 8, results of the plenary sessions of the Commission are as follows:

9

candidates were disqualified based on the  negative opinions of the PIC

12

negative opinions of the PIC were overruled by the Commission

To overrule the negative opinion of the Public Integrity Council, the Commission needs 11 out of 16 votes from its members. Despite numerous public requests, the Commission refused to disclose personalized results of its votings.

Next plenary sessions are scheduled for June 15 and June 16. The Commission still has to consider more than 90 candidates, who received negative opinions from the Public Integrity Council.

Most notorious candidates were not considered by the Commission  yet and may be saved for the last plenary sessions. Meantime, some members of the Commission allegedly have conflict of interests regarding a number of candidates.
