The judiciary is composed of a supreme court, superior courts and courts of first instance, and justices of the peace.
The judges of the superior courts are chosen by the president from the list of nominees submitted by the supreme court.
The courts of first instance are established in the capitals of provinces and their judges are chosen by the superior courts of the districts in which they are located.
Justice is administered principally by a supreme court, superior courts and justices of the peace.
Judges of the superior courts (one or more for each county, or one for two or more counties jointly) are elected for a term of four years.
