Some remarks on the amendment to the act on the National Council of the Judiciary in Poland

Andrzej Szmyt


In 2017, two amendments to the Law on the National Council of the Judiciary were adopted. The first one was vetoed by the president. However, the next amendment was not much different when it comes to important matters from the first one. Both amendments were questioned as to their compliance with the Constitution, especially in regard to the method of appointing judges for the members of this body and because of the interruption of the constitutionally determined term of office of judges currently sitting in the Council. The amendments were also critically assessed by the Venice Commission.
