During most of today's debate, the members of the Judicial Council debated whether to publish an announcement for all courts according to the needs or to leave it out for Skopje, where is the greatest interest, and to advertise for judges in the courts from the interior, where there is less interest and the situation is more alarming.
Some of the members of the Council argued that perhaps it is necessary to think strategically, so that until a new judicial network is created (which does not depend on them), they should strengthen the courts with extended jurisdiction, from where judges will then be sent to the basic courts by delegation. courts where there is no interest from the candidates, and the situation is alarming. Others pointed out that the courts do not exist for the judges, but the courts exist for the needs of the citizens, and the situation is alarming in almost all the courts.
