Polish Supreme Court and the Presidential Draft

13 October 2017. Polish Supreme Court comments on the presidential draft of the Act on the Supreme Court (English version).

On September 26, President Duda filed a draft for the Act on the Supreme Court at the Parliament.

See the draft and the table by INPRIS outlining the proposal (in Polish). 

On October 6, Polish Supreme Court communicated initial comments on the draft (in English). We are looking forward to the final version of the document but the initial comments already show that the proposal is controversial. 

The comments pertain to the extraordinary appeal, appointment of benches, transitional provisions, disciplinary proceedings, reorganisation of the Supreme Court, changes to the human resources of the Supreme Court, jurors, extended powers of the President at the expense of the independence of the Court.
