MOSCOW, October 24. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin presented to the Federation Council the candidacy of Oleg Derbilova for appointment as judges of the Supreme Court (SC). This was reported on the official Kremlin website.
“The President has submitted to the Council of Federation the candidature of Oleg Anatolyevich Derbilova for appointment as judges of the Supreme Court”, – stated in the message.
Earlier this year the President has submitted to the upper house of the Parliament to the nomination of eight judges of the SU.
Updated Supreme Court, created through the merger of the former Supreme court and the Supreme arbitration court (YOU), started work in August last year.
The idea of combining the Supreme and Supreme arbitration courts, which in the future should follow the Constitutional court to move to St. Petersburg, was nominated by President Vladimir Putin, speaking on 21 June 2013 at St. Petersburg international economic forum. Because the Union courts required the amendment of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the procedure was long – the draft of the presidential amendments had to endorse at least two thirds of state Duma deputies, three-quarters of Federation Council members and support of the legislative Assembly not less than two thirds of subjects of the Russian Federation. Then the paper was considered by Parliament and approved by the head of state.
If in the former part of the Supreme court of Russia was 125 judges and YOU – 90 in the United armed forces should be 170 judges. The President of the Supreme Court Vyacheslav Lebedev.
