Pavel discusses plan for more transparency in Constitutional Court nominations

President Petr Pavel says that when it comes to nominees for the Czech Constitutional Court he wants to first make public the process by which they are selected. Speaking at the end of a two-day visit to Poland, the recently elected head of state said proposed candidates would be initially evaluated by an advisory team.

Presenting a fine-tuned method of selecting potential Constitutional Court judges is included in President Pavel’s plan for his first 100 days in office. He said he would strive to ensure this process was completely transparent.
