Ukrainian Judicial Convention Elects New Leaders and Judges

Delegates to The Tenth Extraordinary Convention of Judges of Ukraine, the highest body of judicial self-government, recently elected:  new members for the Council of Judges; four judges for the Constitutional Court; two members for the High Council of Justice, and a new Chairman for the State Judicial Administration (an executive body).  President Viktor Yanukovych addressed the Convention emphasizing that an “independent, accessible and efficient justice system, which meets world standards, is one of the main priorities of Ukraine.” Delegates admitted that the anonymity of the election was somewhat of a formality because discussions regarding candidates were held during conferences.   In addition, delegates stated that the convention bulletins did not offer alternative candidates for voting purposes.
