Parliamentary questions
12 July 2018
E-002491/2018
Answer given by Ms Jourová on behalf of the Commission

The Commission follows the developments regarding the judicial systems in the Member States, including in Hungary.

In its 2018 European Semester Country Report(1) the Commission notes that the judicial system in Hungary faces some challenges. The Country Report states, inter alia, that more could be done to better balance the powers between the President of the National Office for the Judiciary and the National Judicial Council by giving a stronger mandate to the latter in appointments and promotions of judges.

The Country Report also notes that recent amendments to the rules on the selection of judges will be monitored as regards its potential impact on judicial independence.
