- Article XVI, Section 1, of the Organic Law shall be amended to read:
- The judicial power of Talossa shall be vested in one Cort pü Înalt, in English the Uppermost Cort, and in such inferior courts as the Cosâ may from time to time establish. The judges, both of the Uppermost and inferior courts, shall be elected in accordance with Article XVI, Section 4, and shall hold their offices for life (or until resignation), and may only be removed by a two-thirds vote in the Cosâ with approval by the King and the Senäts.
- Furthermore, Article XVI, Section 4, of the Organic Law shall be amended to read:
- In the event of a vacancy, either in the Cort pü Inalt or in an inferior court, any member of the Ziu may nominate a replacement. The nominee shall be approved by a two-thirds vote in the Cosâ and a majority vote in the Senäts in favour of his appointment. Upon such approval the King shall appoint the nominee as a Judge of the Cort pü Inalt or in an inferior court and he shall then take his seat for life upon the court. The King may, stating his reasons for doing so, refuse to appoint the nominee, in which case the Ziu shall re-consider the nominee or nominate a new nominee. If after re-consideration of the nominee, two-thirds of the Cosâ and a majority of the Senäts has approved the nomination, then the King may not refuse to appoint the nominee as a Judge of the Cort pü Inalt or in an inferior court.
