Chief Justice of The Federal Court, Malaysia
 

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wa barakatuh, Salam Sejahtera and Salam Sayangi Malaysiaku. Welcome to the official website of the Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC).

Since the establishment of JAC in 2009, JAC has successfully performed its duties as an independent judicial appointments body responsible for the selection of candidates to be appointed as judges of the superior courts. Whilst discharging its powers and functions to uphold the continued independence of the judiciary to select candidates, JAC had taken into consideration, amongst others, the following criteria:

(a) integrity, competency and experience;
(b) objective, impartial, fair and moral character;
(c) decisiveness, ability to make timely judgments and good legal writing skills;
(d) industriousness and ability to manage cases well; and
(e) physical and mental health.

In addition, to ensure that the selection and appointment process are transparent and consistent with the principle of rule of law, JAC from time to time will endeavor to improve the process which includes determining new selection criteria for the appointment of the superior court judges. This is to ensure that those who are appointed not only possess the necessary experience and professional qualifications but also gain the de rigueur respect from all parties, including the public.

As the Chairman of JAC, I will continue the current initiatives and will explore new initiatives particularly in an effort to enhance public’s confidence towards the Malaysian judiciary. In order to achieve that, focus will also be given to the professionalism and competency development programs of the superior court judges that are being organized by the Judicial Academy under JAC. I believe that with systematic planning, trust, cooperation and support of all parties, this aim can be achieved.
