Election of ECtHR Judges Information Sheet

The Secretariat of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights of the Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly has prepared an information document entitled 'Procedure for electing judges to the European Court of Human Rights'. Apart from providing a succinct overview of the procedure itself, including links to all kinds of documents, it also contains information on when new elections for judges will be held. This shows for example that towards the end of this year president Costa will retire.
