In his speech at the Oxford Union Society, the Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said that elections are at the core of the country’s constitutional democracy, but judges represent the continuity of constitutional values ​​that protect this system. On Tuesday, at Oxford University, while speaking on the topic of the human role of judges in society, the Chief Justice said that technology has an important role in bringing transparency in the judiciary.

The role of judiciary is important in democracy

Acknowledging the criticism of judges on social media, the Chief Justice said that the overall impact of technology is to help the judiciary reach every section of society. Actually, the Chief Justice was asked a question about the Indian elections. In response to this, the Chief Justice said that ‘Elections are at the core of constitutional democracy, but judges are not elected in India. Judges reflect the spirit of continuity of constitutional values. The judiciary has an important role in democracy, in which we reflect the spirit of tradition and also reflect what the future of a good society should be like.’

spoke on special marriage act

When asked about the political and social pressures while delivering judgments as a judge, the Chief Justice said that in his 24-year career he has never faced political pressure from the ruling party. On the Special Marriage Act verdict, the Chief Justice said that I have not come here to defend the verdict because I believe that once the verdict is pronounced, it becomes the property of global humanity. The Special Marriage Act was a law passed by Parliament. I was in the minority in that case, but my three colleagues did not agree because they believed that recognizing gay marriage is outside the jurisdiction of the court.

He said that ‘the court is constantly involved in a process of dialogue and the court communicates not only with the litigating parties but also with the citizens and the society. On his decision to livestream important constitutional cases, DY Chandrachud said that we need to take the process of justice and the administration of law to the homes and hearts of the people.’
