Wor­ry­ing am­bi­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The pro­posal that the age limit for Greek judges be ex­tended be­yond the cur­rent max­i­mum of 67 years is clearly at odds with the Con­sti­tu­tion. The gov­ern­ment was right to re­ject it. The peo­ple who rep­re­sent such im­por­tant and sen­si­tive in­sti­tu­tions should eval­u­ate the cost of sim­i­lar pro­pos­als. The im­pres­sion given by the coun­try’s ju­di­cial sys­tem is deeply prob­lem­atic. A de­ci­sion to give up this wor­ry­ing am­bi­tion can only do good.
