Judicial reform - conflict at the top

Malgorzata Gersdorf
Judicial reform legislation submitted by President Andrzej Duda will maintain the tension between him and the governing party Law and Justice (PiS) from which he hails.
The conflict point remains the mechanism by which Parliament would name members to the National Judiciary Council (KRS), an institution with rights to name or recommend judges.
PiS most recently countered a Presidential proposal with suggestion that the Senate, where PiS has an overwhelming majority, should decide hung votes from the lower house.
The President is insisting on some form of bi-partisan structure in the solution.
The bills would also put the fate of the current Supreme court chief Malgorzata Gersforf in the hands of President Duda who would have the sole power to extend her term beyond the proposed mandatory retirement age, which she hits this November.
