Regarding other Judges of the Higher Judiciary (High Courts and Supreme Court Judges) the power was a political choice and the basis of wisdom of counsel by the highest judicial functioning. The provision in the constitution regarding the appointment of judges from the Supreme Court gave primary to the Executive while at the same time the Chief Justice of India and the Chief Justice of High Courts were accorded high importance and their views in the choice of appointment of Judges were given great importance.
