CJI-designate wants wider representation
Chief Justice of India designate Justice P Sathasivam is in favour of virtual reservation in appointment of judges in higher judiciary by giving more representation to OBCs, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and minorities. ‘We have to give representation to OBCs, SC/STs and other minorities in the appointment of judges to high courts and the SC. Though there is no reservation rule, the selection or appointing authority must keep this in mind. ‘In a country like ours, where different communities... are there, we have to give some latitude to them and fill up those pores,’ he said.
