The European Court of Justice has announced the appointment of nine judges at the General Court.

The lower General Court is made up of two judges from each of the 27 EU member states, who are appointed to serve for a term of six years. EU governments have to put forward and agree on prospective candidates.

The new term will start for the nine judges on September 1 this year and will run until August 31 2028.

Greece's Goulielmos Valasidis is a new appointee, while the remaining eight have been reappointed for an additional term. The returning judges include Geert de Baere and Paul Nihoul (Belgium); Sten Frimodt Nielsen and Jesper Svenningsen (Denmark); Krisztián Kecsmár (Hungary); Marc van der Woude (Netherlands); and Maria José Costeira and Ricardo da Silva Passos (Portugal).
