A large group of deputies prepared four legislative initiatives amending the Constitution of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, the laws “On the Status of Judges”, “On the Constitutional Court” and “On the Judicial System”. As the explanatory note to the legislations stated, “the need for simultaneous consideration of these documents is related to making changes with a single goal - ensuring the stable functioning of such an important element of the state system as the Constitutional Court of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, by raising the age limit for judges of the Constitutional Court Of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic from 65 to 70 years old". In addition, the authors proposed to remove the age limits for the tenure of the Chairman of the Constitutional Court of the Republic.
The deputies supported the initiative and voted for the adoption of legislations in the second reading. The documents will be prepared for consideration in the final third reading.
Lawmakers discussed another draft Constitutional Law, amending the law “On the Status of Judges in Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic”. The author, parliamentarian Alexander Shcherba focused his colleagues' attention on the need to make adjustments to the provision of the law regulating the amount of remuneration of the Deputy Chairman of the Arbitration Court. Earlier, the provision on the conditions of remuneration of judges is valid from 1 August this year.
Deputies supported the law-in-draft. The document was sent for signature to the President.
