If approved, Ketanji Brown Jackson will become the first woman from among the representatives of the black population of the United States in the Supreme Court of the country.

The U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday nominated an African-American woman Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is now a judge of the Court of Appeals in the Metropolitan District of Columbia, as a candidate for inclusion in the Supreme Court.

“I am proud to announce the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for inclusion in the Supreme Court of the United States,” the American leader said on Twitter. Biden called Jackson “one of the brightest legal minds in the country” and expressed confidence that she would become an “outstanding judge” of the Supreme Court.

If approved, Jackson will become the first woman from among the representatives of the black population of the United States in the Supreme Court of the country. It is believed that she is inclined to support liberal ideas when solving controversial legal issues.

Earlier, a number of political and public figures in the United States called on Biden to nominate a representative of the black population of the country as a candidate for the position of a member of the Supreme Court. Biden declared his readiness to do this during the last presidential race.

Federal judges in the United States are appointed for life on the proposal of the head of state. Candidates are considered by American senators. Judicial appointments made by presidents are the most “long-playing” and perhaps the most important part of their domestic political legacy. The Supreme Court consists of nine members.

A seat on the Supreme Court will be vacated due to the fact that one of its members, Stephen Breyer, intends to resign in the summer. He announced these plans in January.
