Judges and the equality of their status
Judges are persons with authorities as determined by law to make fair judgments.
All judges of the Republic of Azerbaijan (president, deputy president, president of boards and judges) will have the same status, rights and responsibilities in hearing a case and be different from one another due to the procedure of appointment, power and term in office. With the exception of the decisions made in a Plenary Session of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Azerbaijan, every judge (except a judge who provides a specific opinion or votes against such a decision during the adoption of the decision) who took part in the adoption of all other collegial court decisions will be equally responsible.
