Amendment No. 20 | Doc. 15204 | 25 January 2021

Mr Arkadiusz MULARCZYK, Poland, EC/DA ; Ms Iwona ARENT, Poland, EC/DA ; Mr Zbigniew GIRZYŃSKI, Poland, EC/DA ; Mr Daniel MILEWSKI, Poland, EC/DA ; Mr Bolesław PIECHA, Poland, EC/DA
2021 - First part-session
In the draft resolution, delete paragraph 14.2.3.

Explanatory note

The Resolution fails to address the fact that the indicated situation regarding elections of the President of the Supreme Court is as probable to happen under the Act on Supreme Court of 2017 as it was under the previous regulations. Theoretically, the model, where the President of the Republic was provided with the list of two candidates also could result in a situation where one of them accumulated very high number of votes and the other one received only one vote. lt is difficult to establish the reasons why the Rapporteur is against the protection of minorities. There are no European standards, which would promote deprivation minority groups from having influence on selection procedure.
