Powoływanie sędziów do składu KRS przez Sejm oraz kontrola legalności uchwał KRS przez NSA. Glosa do wyroku TK z 25.03.2019 r., K 12/18

Mateusz Radajewski


The subject of the commentary is the ruling of the Konstitutional Tribunal of 25 March 2019 regarding the issue of election of members of the National Council of the Judiciary [NCJ] by the Sejm and the review of resolutions of the NCJ regarding appointments of judges to the Supreme Court by the Supreme Administrative Court. With regard to the first issue, the author disputes with the Tribunal, pointing out, inter alia, that the freedom of the ordinary legislator to determine the manner of appointing judges to the NCJ is limited due to the need to enable this authority to effectively discharge – as specified in Article 186(1) of the Polish Constitution – the task of upholding the judicial independence and autonomy. With regard to the possibility of reviewing the resolutions of the NCJ concerning the appointment of a judge by the Supreme Administrative Court, the author shares the position of the adjudicating panel – that it is against the Polish Constitution, but indicates, however, the weakness of the Tribunal’s justification, as well as its erroneous conclusions regarding the effects of the ruling in this case.
