The President of Tunisia announces the details of the new Supreme Judicial Council

Saeed had announced, on Saturday night, a presidential decree to create a temporary Supreme Judicial Council, after he announced last week the dissolution of the Supreme Judicial Council in the latest measure in a series of moves he started on July 25.

In the details published in the Official Gazette, the Tunisian President explained the structure of the new council, which practically consists of 3 councils as follows:

The Provisional Council of the Judicial Judiciary consists of:

– The first president of the Court of Cassation (the President).

– State attorney general at the Court of Cassation, Vice-President, State Prosecutor General, Director of Judicial Services (rapporteur).
– President of the Real Estate Court (Member),

– Three retired justices from the judiciary, known for their competence, integrity, and independence, and who do not practice any other job or profession. They are appointed by presidential order (members).

The Interim Council of Administrative Judiciary is composed of:

– First President of the Administrative Court (the President).

– The head of the commentary department, the oldest in his plan, provided that he is not an agent of the first president, the deputy head – the state’s most senior general delegate in

His plan (decision).

– Head of the Appeals Chamber, the oldest in his plan (member).

Three retired judges from the administrative judiciary, known for their efficiency, integrity, and independence, and who do not practice any other job or profession. They are appointed by presidential order (members).

The Provisional Council of the Financial Judiciary consists of:

– First President of the Court of Accounts (Chairman).

– Head of the Appeals Chamber, the oldest in the plan (member).

Three retired judges from the Malian judiciary known for their efficiency, integrity and independence, and who do not practice any other job or profession, appointed by presidential order (members).

Saeed took the step after his stinging criticism of the judges for months, when he repeatedly stated that he would not allow there to be a state for the judiciary, but rather a state judiciary.

He frequently criticized the judiciary’s delay in issuing rulings in cases of corruption and terrorism, saying that there is corruption and that he is determined to reform the judiciary.

Saeed said this month that the judiciary is a function only within the state and not an authority. And also last month canceled all financial privileges for members of the Council.
