After the resignation of Patrialis Akbar, the Constitutional Court is in need of one more Justice. It is all the more unfortunate that Patrialis was caught for bribery just before the simultaneous regional elections. The need for a new Justice to join the ranks has become more urgent now the Constitutional Court is reviewing dozens of election dispute lawsuits. The President has signed a Presidential Decree and formed a Selection Committee in search for the new Justice, but the cutoff date for the registration of candidates is March 31, 2017 whereas the examination of the dispute petitions will take place in the third week of March 2017, with the election runoff stage to be conducted on April 19, 2017. Can the Constitutional Court handle the burden for the time being?To subscribe please click here
