Ep. 25: The Political War over Judicial Appointments

Ep. 25: The Political War over Judicial Appointments ...

Author: IVM Podcasts

In this episode, we talk about the institutional tug-of-war that has taken place between the judiciary and the political executive over who controls the procedure to appoint judges to the High Courts and the Supreme Court. In this episode we try to unpack why governments have been concerned about exercising some sort of control over the process and why we are presently stuck in an unacceptable situation where almost no one is happy with the way judges are being appointed.
