SHOULD JUDGES BE APPOINTED BY A RULING GOVERNMENT?

Some of the responses anointedmedia gathered was that;

For a fair trial and justice to be served, for all persons who appears in the court, irrespective of political status or by influence, judges should have a common committee that allows them (the Judicial) to select by means of voting for them that will avail themselves.

It is therefore advised by the public that, ruling government is not supposed to selected judges who should seat in the high offices of the Supreme Court.

The Ghana Judicial Service is a huge institution which could handle its own leadership. And whenever political issues, or issues relating to politicians are sent to the court, it may not look like the politician is of a different standard and the ordinary Ghanaian is also of a different or a lower standard.

It is of the public view that, Offices of the high court of Ghana must not be occupied by a ruling government. The Judge must even be in the office before the coming of the new government.
