Decisions

The print version

The Council for the Judiciary is authorised to adopt decisions, if at least two thirds of its members participate in the sitting.

The Council for the Judiciary adopts decisions by vote. If votes are distributed equally, casting vote belongs to the Chair of the Council for the Judiciary.  

If a decision is adopted by written procedure, the member of the Council shall send his/her opinion on the draft decision to the Secretariat within the period of two working days, stating objections or proposals, if any. Upon receiving and summing up the proposals, a clarified draft decision is sent to the members of the Council. Within two working days, the members of the Council shall send electronically their votes on the clarified draft decision to the Secretariat.

The decision adopted by the Council by written procedure is signed by the Chair of the Council.
