Chisinau, 12 August /MOLDPRES/- Election and appointment of members of the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) and the Superior Council of Prosecutors (CSP) would be regulated according to new amendments.

Parliament's committee on rules and immunities today voted in favor of a draft law, which includes new methods for electing and appointing members of the Superior Council of Magistracy and the Superior Council of Prosecutors.

According to the amendments of the draft law, six of the CSM judges will be elected by the General Assembly of judges, four from the courts and one from the courts of appeal and the Supreme Court of Justice.

The draft law includes similar provisions regarding elections to the Superior Council of Prosecutors. Thus, the CSP will announce the date of convening the meeting at least two months in advance, and the participation in the General Assembly can also take place online. "The candidate who has been a prosecutor for at least 3 years actually worked and has not been disciplinary sanctioned in the last 3 years can be chosen", informative note reads.

The draft also sees organization of the General Assembly of Judges. Thus, participation in the meeting can also take place by teleconference. Also, the draft introduces the possibility of using electronic voting in extraordinary cases, such as the pandemic, but this fact is to be regulated in the regulations of the General Assembly of Judges.
