Updates to discussion on filling the vacancies of judges

According to the information provided by the Court Administration, there are currently 9 vacancies for judges in regional courts and 14 vacancies in district (city) courts. Vacancies are not filled quickly – some stay available even for more than two years, and there is no clear system regarding who makes a decision to start the process to fill a vacancy, who directs the process and how it involves the Judicial Council, which by law determines the number of judges in each court.
