In the draft resolution, paragraph 13, insert the following sentence at the end of the paragraph:

"It must be noted, however, that no legal provision determining appointment of judges was broken".

Explanatory note

It is a statement of fact. There was no breach, nor misapplication of any of statutory rules applicable in the procedure of appointing SC judges in 2018-2019. Moreover, then-appointed judge Ewa Stefanska had been already recommended for nomination to the SC also by the former NCJ.
