Following on from this this question - There is a lot of resistance from the EU and the mainstream media to Poland's proposed changes to the way Judges are selected.
As I understand it, the current system is that new Judges are appointed by the existing Judges, which is very unpopular in Poland as they have been accused of nepotism and corruption, particularly as many of them are the same people who held similar roles when Poland was under Communist rule.
In the proposed system, the top Judges who nominate new judges would be appointed by the government, and this is what is being objected to as it could lead to a bias in the Judiciary in favour of the Governing party.
However - other countries have similar systems, and they are not being told to change by the EU. Wikipedia states that German judges are appointed by the State departments of Justice, and their Federal judges are appointed by ministers and MPs. Similarly the members of the French Constitutional Council are appointed by the president and the presidents of the National Assembly and Senate, and in Spain, the members of the General Council of the Judiciary are elected, half by the Senate and half by the Congress.
So, why are those examples considered different to Poland's proposals?
