Poland supremo partially accepts people’s demand over judicial reform issue

As the Poland supremo’s move to implement the bill giving power to the ruling party in the appointment of judges has invited wide flak, President Andrzej Duda has partially agreed to the people’s demand of making compromises to the plan for a good cause. Last day, the several people attended the candle march organised to express the disapproval over the proposed changes in the judicial system. Many believe that the government’s move will adversely affect the independence of the judiciary which is necessary to run a system smoothly. As per the new bill, the body which consists of those members which are either nominated or elected by the parliament members has the authority to select the judges. It is apparent that the bill is giving control to the parliament and is trying to bring the judiciary under the direct control of legislature which is dominated by the ruling party, the Law and Justice Party. Anyway, now, in order to de-escalate the tension, the supremo proposes that the nominations to the body need absolute majority. The move is to make sure that the opposition gets the message that no appointments will be approved unilaterally. However, still, the political leaders affiliated with the ruling government are defending the policy saying the bill will help to reduce the corrupted that engulfed the judicial system of Poland. At this moment, it is not clear whether the opposition parties and people accept the proposed amendment to the bill.
