Draft law amending and supplementing Law on CSM adopted by majority of 120 votes

The House of People’s Representatives (HPR) adopted on Tuesday the draft organic law amending and supplementing the Organic Law 2016-34 of April 28, 2016 on the Supreme Judicial Council by a majority of 120 votes in favor, 2 against and 12 abstentions.

Before voting the bill article by article, the parliamentary groups of the Free Patriotic Union, the Popular Front and the Democratic bloc pulled out n rejection of the bill.

The bill was proposed in early March as part of a government legislative initiative in response to persistent disagreement between the judicial structures, for more than 4 months after the election of members of the CSM in November 2016.

Since the announcement of the results of the CSM elections, the first meeting of the Board has not been held to date due to differences in the quorum of the first session and the appointment of judges to the CSM

Dozens of judges, all bodies together, rallied on Tuesday outside the HPR to demand the withdrawal of the government’s legislative initiative on the CSM.

The Administrative Tribunal decided on Monday to suspend all decisions announced on behalf of the Supreme Council of the Judiciary and the continuation of the mission of the Provisional Judicial Authority until the installation of the CSM.

Head of the Information and Communication Unit at the Administrative Tribunal, Imed Ghabri said the candidates proposed by the Provisional Judicial Authority to fill vacancies in the Council are admissible and the Prime Minister would have validated them, in accordance with the provisions of article 148 of the Constitution and article 74 of the organic law establishing the Supreme Judicial Council.

During this rally, Raoudha Karafi called on MPs “not to adhere to this legislative masquerade,” saying it represents in several respects a violation of the text of the Constitution.

Several MPs, Samia Abbou, Ghazi Chaouachi, Mourad Hemaidi, Slah Barguaoui and Faisal Tebbini, joined the rally to reaffirm their support for the protesters’ position.
