The 27th Supreme Court was appointed by Secretary Kavagrad and confirmed by electoral citizens in individual confidence votes, following the September 2022 Secretarial election. This consisted of three Standing Justices and one Alternate Justice over a three-month term from 27 September to 31 December 2022. The final members of the 27th Supreme Court were Chief Justice South Miruva, Minor Justices Asturies-Llion and Scaled Islanders, and Alternate Justice New Samon.

Members[edit | edit source]

The Supreme Court confirmation vote concluded on 27 September 2022, and the three Standing Justices internally elected South Miruva to serve as Chief Justice on 17 October 2022. While the December 2022 Secretarial election was held as scheduled, a lengthy NationStates outage through 23-27 December disrupted the following confirmation vote for the 28th Supreme Court, extending the 27th Supreme Court's official term until vote results were announced on 31 December 2022.

As two Secretarial election committee members were nominated for Cabinet positions, Marxist Land of Peoples and Super Awesome Fun Times, they were replaced by New Arkados and Remandia in accordance with the Secretarial Appointment Act.[1] The confirmation vote election committee thus consisted of founder New Prague Workers Republic, Equalitopia, and South Miruva.
