Judiciary appointment

The Union Government and Judiciary are once again on crossroad on the issue of the appointment of Judges of High Court and the Supreme Court.

According to sources, Government wants the Judges to be selected from its list of the candidates and Union Law Ministry is understood to have circulated a draft proposal to this effect.

At present the SC collegium, headed by the Chief Justice of India has the final say in the selection of the Judges and the government has no choice but to accept the recommendation of the collegium as per the judgement of the apex court in the case of Advocates on record Association Vs Union of India and others.

CJI has made it clear he has no problem with the Government making new law on the appointment of the Judges.

But at present the SC collegium is going by the judgement of the SC which is binding on the government as well on the collegium.
