This CEPIL research and supported petition filed under the umbrella of CISTIJ, seeks to streamline the processes within which the Judiciary receives its funding. The constitution observes and provides for a self-accounting status of the institution of the Judiciary. The Executive is only required to make comments on the budget presented to them by the judiciary to be passed onto Parliament for debate. The budget however is amended by the Executive in stark contrast to provisions in the constitution.
This petition is challenging the constitutionality of the actions of the Executive in approving budgetary framework; inadequate allocation and budget cuts thereby leading to underfunding of the institution of the judiciary rendering it ineffective in discerning its constitutional mandate.
