Importance of Transparency in Judicial Appointments

flagsI recently read an interesting article about the importance of transparency in judicial appointments.

The article highlighted the death of Antonin Scalia, a leading conservative Justice of the US Supreme Court and the fierce debate surrounding his replacement.

Scalia was chosen by Ronald Reagan in 1986 and one of the vital powers of the US President is deciding on a judge for the court.

The situation is different in Australia, but transparency is the key element that should be common in both countries. Read more about the debate at http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/3829282/transparency-vital-in-judicial-appointments/
