Competition for the selection of candidates under the President’s quota for non-existent judicial vacancies on the Constitutional Court of Ukraine continues


The Centre of Policy and Legal Reform calls on the President of Ukraine to refrain from further escalation of the conflict with the Constitutional Court of Ukraine.

On August 17, the President of Ukraine issued Decree №365/2021 «Re: Competition for the selection of candidates for the position of a judge of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine regarding persons appointed by the President of Ukraine», which approved new regulations on carrying out the competition for the selection of candidates for the position of a judge of the CCU (regarding persons appointed by the President of Ukraine), as well as set the composition of the competition commission for conducting such a competition (made up of both citizens of Ukraine and foreigners).

On August 20, the beginning of the competition for the selection of candidates under the quota of the President of Ukraine for the position of a judge of the CCU was announced by decision of the competition commission (Minutes № 1).

On September 24, the District Administrative Court of Kyiv commenced proceedings regarding a claim filed by the CCU judges O. Tupytsky and O. Kasminin against the Office of the President of Ukraine (OPU) and the competition commission for the selection of the CCU judges, challenging the August 20 decision of the competition commission.
