Louis Ng on Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill and Judicial Service (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill

A proposed restructuring of Singapore’s Legal Service will allow for greater specialisation and flexibility needed to tackle an increasingly complex legal landscape, said MP Louis Ng in Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 3). He sought several clarifications. First, how to ensure the independence of the Legal Service, Judicial Service and Public Service commissions - with the PSC chairman being vice-president of both the LSC and JSC. Second, what plans there are to diversify the talent pool of judicial officers in the JSC. Finally, he asked if there will be limits on the reappointment of members to the LSC and JSC and if not, why.
