The government on Thursday introduced a key bill in the Rajya Sabha to amend the constitution for replacing the existing judges appointment system with a broad based panel in which non-judges will be in a majority.

Law minister Kapil Sibal introduced the 120th constitution amendment bill for setting-up the Judicial Appointments Commission in place of the existing system in which the five senior most judges of the Supreme Court (collegium) recommend names to the government for appointment of judges to the SC and High Courts.
