The key condition in this process is to form the High Administrative Court following the same procedure as with the establishment of the High Anticorruption Court (HACC), i.e., with the involvement of the international experts in selecting judges.

It is necessary to envisage the establishment of the High Administrative Court with the participation of international experts in this process.
