CONSTITUTION OF THE
TRIBUNAL DES CONFLITS
The Conflict Court consists of the following persons:
- I.A President, the Minister of Justice (Garde des sceaux). He rarely attends, though he may attend, preside, and vote.
- II.Eight elected judges, namely:—
- a.Three judges of the Court of Cassation (Conseillers à la Cour deCassation) elected for three years by their colleagues, i.e. by the judges of the Court of Cassation.
- b.Three members of the Council of State (Conseillers d'état en service ordinaire) elected for three years by their colleagues (i.e. by the Conseillers détat en service ordinaire).
- c.Two other persons elected by the foregoing six judges of the Conflict Court, enumerated under heads a and b.
These two other persons ought in strictness to be elected neither from the judges of the Court of Cassation nor from the members of the Council of State, but they are in general elected one from the Court of Cassation, the other from the Council of State.
These eight persons, who are re-eligible and usually re-elected, or, if we include the Minister of Justice, these nine persons, constitute the judges of the Conflict Court.
Then there are two substitutes (suppleants) elected by the judges coming under the heads a and b who act only when one of the judges of the Conflict Court cannot act.
There are further two so-called Commissioners of the Government (Commissaires du Gouvernement) appointed for a year by the President of the Republic; the one for a year from the Masters of Requests (Maîtres des requêtes), who belong to the Council of State, the other from the class of public prosecutors, belonging to the Court of Cassation (avocats généraux à la Cour de Cassation).
