As new justices of the Constitutional Court have not been appointed by the Seimas, the Court continues to work in its current composition
Under Paragraph 1 of Article 103 of the Constitution, every three years, one-third of the Constitutional Court is reconstituted. In accordance with Paragraph 2 of Article 4 of the Law on the Constitutional Court, the term of office of three justices of the Constitutional Court must expire on 19 March this year. On this day, the Seimas has not appointed three new justices of the Constitutional Court.
Under the Constitution, every state authority institution performs its functions without interruption; no legal situations may arise in which an institution implementing state authority does not function. The Constitutional Court is an independent judicial authority institution.
In view of this and based on Paragraph 2 of Article 4 of the Law on the Constitutional Court, the Constitutional Court will continue to work in its current composition until new justices are appointed and take an oath.
