At the launch of a research report entitled “Safeguarding Judicial Independence: Appointment, Promotion and Removal of Judges in Malaysia” on 22 March 2021, the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) called for reforms to be made to the appointment process of judges at both the superior and subordinate courts to ensure a merit-based, non-discriminatory and independent appointment process.

The research paper was commissioned by Bersih 2.0 and written by Serene Lim.

The report reveals that while the appointment process of judges has improved in recent years after the establishment of the Judicial Appointment Commission in 2009, there is still much room for improvement in the process to safeguard judicial independence.
