Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The selection process for U.S. Supreme Court justices has grown ever more complex. Presidents have the constitutional power to nominate justices, and, in doing so, they have employed several criteria at different times, including professional merit, ideological compatibility, and political support by the president and his advisers. Under the Constitution, the Senate has the authority to consent to or reject appointees. In recent decades it has used public hearings to ascertain a nominee's qualifications and, within certain limitations, the nominee's ideological attitudes. This process is intensely political and, as such, it reflects the Supreme Court's broad authority as the final interpreter of the Constitution, many of whose provisions raise highly contestable issues of great political significance. This article discusses these matters in light of Supreme Court appointments over the past century. 

      This is usually a complex process that involves several procedures. President of the US government have the constitutional power to nominate justices,and they have employed different criteria in doing so.This includes professional merit, ideological compatibility and political support by the president and his or her political advisers.The constitution also allows the senate to either approve or reject the appointees. Also in a recent past,public hearings have been employed to ascertain the appointees.

A look at past selection processes clearly indicates that they are highly political and even we have had some appointees turned down due to political inferiority. I thus have the following recommendations:

1. The main emphasis should be put on professionalism of an individual rather than on political affiliation.

2.Laws should be enacted to provide an independent ,non-political organ with power to select judges.

3. The percentage of approval by senate should be lowerd to a lower fraction by the law. this will allow individuals affiliated to minor political parties or non partisans a chance.

4.The process should be done openly,allowing for general public followup,this will limit favorism
