During the first day, HQCJ received 190 notices of intent to participate in the competition to the High Anti-Corruption Court

In the first day after the beginning of submission period 190 notices of intent to take part in competitions for the positions of judges of the High Anti-Corruption Court were received by the HQCJ.

This is reported on the website of the High Qualification Commission of Judges.

In addition, 282 candidates intend to take part in the competition to the Supreme Court; therefore, HQCJ received a total of 472 notices of intentions during the first day of registration.

One can file a notice of intentions to take part in competitions for the position of a judge on the HQCJ website through a simple electronic form where information about the candidate, their contact details and information about the experience and expected position should be filled in.

“The law does not establish detailed procedures and does not envisage notice of intentions. This is defined in the HQCJ by-laws. The commission needs this to plan its activities. Then, having this information, the HQCJ, depending on the number of applicants for participation in the competition, can develop schedules and procedures necessary for conducting this competition. For example, in case of testing, they need to take into account the size of the room that would fit the candidates. This is a technical issue for the convenience of administering the competition,” says Roman Kuybida, deputy chairman of the Center for Policy and Legal Reforms, chief expert of the Judiciary Reform Group of Reanimation Package of Reforms.

HQCJ notes that failure to notify of the intention to take part in the competition does not serve as a reason for the person’s non-admission.

“Practice shows that often more candidates submit notices of intentions than subsequently participate in the competition. For example, 1,400 people filed notices of intention to participate in the competition to the Supreme Court, and about 800 people filed the documents. The reasons may be different – failed to collect a package of documents, changed their mind and so on,” says Roman Kuibida.

High Qualification Commission of Judges of Ukraine accepts applications for participation in competitions to the High Anti-Corruption and Supreme Courts by August 1, 2018 inclusive. See infographics for the information on who can submit applications.
