The new rule will be approved tomorrow, just 24 hours after taking into consideration. It will not go through a presentation or a commission, nor will it have an amendment process.

Nor has it been informed by the affected sectors, not even by the General Council of the Judiciary, despite the fact that it expressly requested it.

The Executive of Pedro Sánchez wants to carry out at all costs in a few weeks the partial renewal of the Constitutional Court, which on this occasion corresponds to the Government itself (two magistrates) and the CGPJ (two others). And he has chosen to once again reform the Organic Law of the Judiciary so that the governing body of the judges can already carry out the election of the members of the TC that correspond to it.

However, the impediment for the CGPJ to appoint Supreme Court magistrates will remain. and presidents of superior courts and hearings. This measure, which seeks to put pressure on the PP, is beginning to generate serious concern in the CGPJ because it harms the operation of most of the Supreme Court’s chambers.

The incorporation of the four new magistrates will mean a rollover at most TCwhich will become progressive by 7 votes to 5.

“Given the alarming constitutional laxity of the PP, laziness that attacks the institutional foundations and the balances that we have granted ourselves; in the face of the paralysis produced by the PP’s boycott of renewing the CGPJ, it is a democratic obligation and an ethical conviction to put on the table all the parliamentary mechanisms to allow the constitutional system not to be blocked”, said Aranda.

“The passivity of the PP has been increasing regardless of who leads it, whether Casado or Feijóo”, he added, referring to the “constitutional refusal” of the popularthat “delegitimize democracy when they do not govern”.

The spokesman for the Popular Group, Carlos Rojashas highlighted that the European Commission urges the renewal of the governing body of the Judiciary and, at the same time, calls for “undertaking a profound reform to strengthen its independence and that of the Prosecutor’s Office”.

“It is the offer of agreement that Núñez Feijóo has made,” Rojas recalled, lamenting that the Socialist spokesman had not commented “not one point” on the proposal presented by the PP last Monday.

For Rojas, the new twist to the CGPJ competitions “is not what Europe asks for”.

“The foundations of Justice cannot be decided in an express law like the one brought by the PSOE after agreeing on it with its partners from ERC and Bildu. A law on another express law”, which “carries political sectarianism to the core of the democracy”, “has the Judiciary and shakes its institutions”. “The Government legislates à la carte for its interests”has summarized.

After recalling that “Europe says that these laws cannot be done like this and that they need the report of the CGPJ”, Rojas has asked the PSOE to “rectify”. “We’re still on time”has held.

Both Vox and Ciudadanos have criticized the two main parties that their ultimate goal is to agree to manage Justice.
