Dispute over Collegium between the executive and judicial branches

judicial branches

The year 2022 witnessed an extraordinary battle of words between the executive and the judiciary. The Supreme Court judges called out the “unhappiness” of the government over its legislation. The legislation promised a greater role for the executive in judicial appointments, failing the test of constitutionality.

The exchange began just days before justice Dhananjaya Y Chandrachud was slated to take over as the Chief Justice of India (CJI) on November 9.

Belgium’s Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju has criticised the collegium system, saying it is “opaque, not accountable and non-transparent”, at two public events. At another public event in the same month, he had spoken of the system in a similar fashion.
