The press release further states that the president has asked the High Judicial Council to expedite the procedures for filling the Supreme Court. "Making the High Court functioning as quickly and fully as possible, but at the same time functioning with the necessary judicial bodies of the Courts of Appeal, is of vital importance for the country, is directly related to the European integration process, Albania's stability, and respect for "fundamental human rights and freedoms", it is said in the announcement of the Presidency. Meanwhile, it is expected that the president will soon make the appointment of Asim Vokshi, as his name has been approved by the HJC. Together with Vokshi goes to 9 the number of members of the High Court.
The fate of the Constitution
With the completion of the High Court with 10 names, the work begins to complete the Constitutional Court with 9 members. According to the law, the Constitution consists of 9 members, where 3 are elected by the Assembly, 3 by the president and 3 by the Supreme Court. The first 2 institutions have fulfilled the obligation, but the Supreme Court still. The reason is because there is no quorum to convene a meeting of judges. According to recent changes, the Supreme Court must have at least 10 members to vote on the names that will go to the Constitutional Court. US Ambassador Yuri Kim also reacted in this regard. "Important step forward for the implementation of justice reform: The 8th judge is appointed to the High Ct, with the 9th to come soon. Once the 10th is appointed, the Supreme Court will have the quorum to appoint 3 more judges to the Constitutional Court.
