Postulat utworzenia rady do spraw sądownictwa podczas obrad Okrągłego Stołu

Krzysztof Grajewski


This article discusses the part of negotiations during the Round Table talks that concerned the establishment of an independent council of the judiciary as a body safeguarding the independence of courts and judges. This postulate came from the Solidarity-opposition side and was met with fierce resistance of the representatives of the then governing regime. The creation of the National Council of the Judiciary as a body vested with the exclusive power to present candidates for judges to the head of state was finally successfully negotiated by the participants of the Round Table talks. Soon after that, the necessary constitutional amendments were introduced and the first law regulating the functioning of the Council was passed. It started operating in February 1990.
