Parliament Passes Judicial System Act Amendments on First Reading

Bulgaria's Parliament Wednesday passed on first reading amendments to the Judicial System Act moved by the Council of Ministers. The vote was 116 in favour, 5 against and 10 abstentions.
The movers argue that the amendments are prompted by the revisions to the Constitution. One of the objectives is to solidify judicial self-governance as a means of curbing administrative forms of influence. The most important functions are to be assigned to judges' general assemblies, which will determine the number and complement of the divisions, will hear the candidates for president and vice president of the relevant court, will give opinions on the nominations and will determine the distribution of cases by subject matter. Court presidents will be largely limited to organizer functions: managing the property of the court and directing the administration.
