TAIPEI, Taiwan — The plan was reached after four hours of discussions on Monday at a
panel session as part of the Judicial Reform National Conference organized by the Presidential Office.
Of the 18 members present at the session, 16 voted to pass a reform program proposed by the Judicial Yuan concerning the number of judges at the Supreme Court and the Supreme Administrative Court, and concerning how the judges will be selected and appointed.
The plan will be completed over the next five years, transforming the top-heavy nature of the current system to a more balanced pyramid-like structure, according to the panel.
The number of judges at the Supreme Court will be cut to only 14 and that of the Supreme Administrative Court slashed to 7 in the coming five years. [FULL STORY]
