UNITED NATIONS (AN) — Four judges from China, Japan, Slovakia and Uganda were re-elected to the International Court of Justice while a German candidate won the fifth open slot on the U.N.'s top judicial chamber, the ICJ said on Friday.
The court, based in The Hague, Netherlands, has 15 judges elected to nine-year terms. Each of them may be re-elected if they want to continue serving. Elections for five of the ICJ's judges occur every three years. The new terms for the latest five winning candidates will start on February 6, 2021.
