MoP deadlock: SC goes ahead with appointment of judges

By Vicky

With non resolution in sight, the Supreme Court has started taking up pending recommendations and appointing judges to the higher judiciary. The names of several judges were stuck as the Supreme Court and the Union Government were unable to come to a conclusion on the Memorandum of Procedure.

The SC's Collegium had last week rejected several recommendations made by the government while appointing judges to the higher judiciary. The SC said that it cannot allow the government to have a veto power in the process. The SC is not in agreement with the National Security Clause that the government wanted inserted into the MoP.

The Collegium has over the past week held several meetings. It has already cleared the names of 43 judges to be appointed to the various high courts in the country. The Collegium also rejected a large number of recommendations that were proposed by the various high courts. This was meant to send out a strong message that due diligence must be followed before sending out recommendations to the SC. The highest number of rejections were from the Bombay High Court. In the case of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, all seven recommendations were cleared.
