The Ethics Council has published a list of candidates for the position of a High Council of Justice (HCJ) member, selected under the quota of the Congress of Legal Scholars. These candidates have been deemed to meet the criteria of professional ethics and integrity. Individuals on this list include Oksana Kvasha, Oleh Rozhnov, Volodymyr Korol, Ihor Kovbasa, Ivan Nazarov, and Iryna Davydovych.

On November 16, the Congress of Legal Scholars is scheduled to convene in Kyiv, tasked with electing a new HCJ member from among these candidates. Recent Congress sessions have underscored significant issues, such as conflicts of interest, external interference, and abuse of authorities. For a detailed exploration of these challenges, refer to the column by our expert, Ivan Shemelynets.

It is evident that legislative adjustments to the Congress procedures are imperative to safeguard the integrity of the judicial reform outcomes.
