Supreme Court (The Leftist Assembly)
The Supreme Court is the judicial branch of The Leftist Assembly. It consists of three Justices appointed by the Secretary and approved by citizens in individual confidence votes.
Each Justice's term lasts for approximately three months from the date of their confirmation until the date of the next Secretary's Supreme Court appointment confirmations.
This body handles legal disputes between citizens, hosts court cases to settle criminal charges, votes on said criminal charges upon the conclusion of a fair and public hearing, and is the highest authority on the interpretation of all regional law as per the Court Procedure Act.
The Legal Standard Act was proposed by Llorens in the 5th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 18-3, on 21 May 2017. As per its changes, the positions of Chief Justice, First Justice and Second Justice, held at the time by New Lonopolian Empire, Rathfarnham and Llorens respectively, were each renamed to Justice and given equal voting power on all legal proceedings of the Ministry of Law.
The Judicial Separation Act was proposed by Llorens in the 7th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 19-1, on 6 November 2017. As per its changes, the legislature and judiciary were completely separated following the December 2017 election, with Justices instead being appointed by the Secretary and approved by citizens in individual confidence votes. The bill also officially named the judiciary as the Supreme Court.
