in the United States, it is possible to appoint Chief Justices for the
Supreme Court from either within the existing court, or as a new
appointee.  In which other Democratic countries is this possible in
either supreme courts of appeal or constitutional courts? Also, are
there other cases where the Chief Justice would keep that post for his
or her entire term?

appointment to the Supreme Court have a legal background (just a
little extra info).
as for other countries, i don't know.
