“The judiciary needs to enhance its stature and credibility in the eyes of the public. Before I end my term, I will table a Parliamentary Bill to establish a Judicial Appointments Commission. Such a Commission will propose judicial appointments in a transparent and merit-based manner.” (Full statement from Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on his resignation, 08 Oct 2008.)
