NEW DELHI, July 27 — In an unprecedented turn to the controversy over appointment of judges, the President today asked the Supreme Court to decide whether Chief Justice of India (CJI) could make recommendations for appointments without following the consultation process and whether such recommendations would be binding on the government.
The reference by President K.R. Narayanan followed doubts expressed about the interpretation of the law laid down by the Supreme Court in this regard.
Union Minister Ram Jethmalani had contended that recommendations had been made without following the due process of consultation.
