On November 18, the High Council of Justice (SCJ) submitted to Zelenskiy the list of judges for appointment. Public organizations note that 91 out of 135 judges on this list received a negative opinion public council and did not pass the qualification assessment.

As stated in the appeal, according to Art. 88 of the Law on the Judicial System and the Status of Judges, 11 members of the High Qualification Commission of Judges must vote for the appointment of a candidate as a judge. However, this commission has not been working since 2019, and it is illegal to appoint judges without going through the procedure prescribed by law.

“The GSP is actually calling on the president to grossly violate Ukrainian legislation,” the public activists write.

  • On July 14, 2021, the Cassation Administrative Court of the Supreme Court overturned Zelensky’s decree, which he canceled the appointment Tupitsky for the post of head of the KSU.
