The judicial and prosecutorial branches of the Court are institutionally separate and functionally distinct while the Registry is made responsible &t;or the non-judicial aspects of the administration and servicing of the Court&t;. The Office of the Prosecutor is headed by the Prosecutor who may be assisted by one or more Deputy Prosecutors. The Presidency is a distinct organ of the Court composed of the President, the First Vice-President and the Second Vice-President elected by an absolute majority of the judges.
