PRIME MINISTER BOYKO BORISSOV: WITHOUT AMENDING THE CONSTITUTION THE JUDICIAL REFORM WOULD BE INCOMPLETE AND INEFFECTIVE
16 April 2015

“After all the analyses presented to me by the Minister of Justice and the working groups, we concluded that without several amendments to the Constitution, every judicial reform would be incomplete and ineffective,” Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said at a press conference in the Council of Ministers where the government’s draft judicial reform strategy was presented today. “I would not support something that is not strong or effective enough”, Borissov pointed out, adding that the matter had been discussed with Chairman of the Supreme Court of Cassation Lozan Panov, Chairman of the Supreme Administrative Court Georgi Kolev, and Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov. The Prime  Minister stressed that as a first step the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) had to be reorganized. “It is evident that it is ineffective; without constitutional amendments it would continue to operate another two and a half years”, Borissov added. He explained that the amendment to the Constitution would split the SJC into a judges' chamber and prosecutors' chamber. “The judges’ chamber will consist of judges primarily, elected by judges, and would also include the chairs of the Supreme Administrative Court and the Supreme Court of Cassation”, the Prime Minister said. The other chamber would include prosecutors and investigating magistrates, and the larger quota would be elected by Parliament in order to control the work of the prosecution. “Talks with all parliamentary parties will be held. This is a fair decision and we will give the judiciary full independence,” Prime Minister Borissov said. According to him, that way an entirely new SJC would be constructed and elected in line with requirements of EC’s monitoring report. He added that one of the changes being discussed was the Prosecutor General reporting to Parliament once a year. Borissov added that he was hopeful that Parliament would reach a consensus and that consultations would be held within two weeks.
