The Senate will convene a session for tomorrow to advance in the expansion project of the Supreme Court of Justice. It is an initiative promoted by the Kirchnerismgrouped from front of allbefore which the interblock of Together for Change He anticipated that he will not give a quorum. Meanwhile, Justice Minister Martín Soria redoubled the need to to insist with the judicial reform before him progress of the road cause.

“It is necessary to expand and federalize the Supreme Court. Let’s compare with neighboring countries. Uruguay has 5 magistrates, 3 of which are women; Bolivia and Paraguay have 9 judges; Brazil, 11; Chile, 21. We have 4 men: a man from Córdoba, two from Santa Fe and a Clarín employee,” Soria said this morning in statements to El Destape radio.

The Vialidad case as the cornerstone of the claim

In this framework, he considered it “essential” that the National Congress deal with
initiatives in this direction. «Did no one wonder why in May 2019, before the PASO, the Vialidad case went to the Supreme Court for only 24 hours? Such was the pressure from the macrismo, from Clarín and La Nación that, without resolving the appeals that had to be dealt with prior to being brought to trial and starting this show, they returned the case to Comodoro PRO in 24 hours. It was the beginning of the electoral campaign,” said the minister.

He also wondered, like the rest of Kirchnerism, about the legal and supposedly impartial functioning of the Court. “No one wondered why on June 21 of this year, just 3 weeks after 18 governors met with President Alberto Fernández to promote the idea of ​​expanding and federalizing the Court, that same Court resolved in a single day, 3 weeks later, all the claims of irregularities in the Vialidad case?

Despite the invitation to the macrismo to dialogue, the responsibility they attribute to him for the alleged “judicial table” is also striking. “One thing is related to the other. It is one of the clearest mechanisms of violence, stigmatization and persecution put at the service of what was the ‘judicial table’ that Mauricio Macri set up. There you can see how judges, prosecutors, chambermaids, courtiers gathered in Olivos and in the Casa Rosada. They were armed causes and without evidence, supported by tons of Clarín covers », he concluded. In this way, the possibility of a meeting between the two forces is increasingly diluted.

The project promoted by Kirchnerism

The main bill aims to raise the number of members of the highest court to 25. However, there are negotiations so that modifications of the original opinion are made in the venue and finally the half sanction is for an integration less than the 25 proposed. At the same time, the criticism for the alleged irregular handling of Justice deepened with the request for the conviction of Cristina Kirchner.

From the interblock of Together for Change in the Senate, they anticipated that they will not sit in their seats to give a quorum, but they clarified that they will go down to the floor in case the Front of All gets the 37 legislators present to start the session. The initiative to raise the number of members of the highest court to 25 has the support of the Peronist governors, grouped in the League of Governors. During a meeting, they made explicit their support for the bill to modify the Supreme Court.

The national senators for San Luis Adolfo Rodríguez Saá and for Río Negro Alberto Weretilneck will give the present and will contribute to the quorum that the ruling party needs, but their vote will depend on these negotiations to reduce the number of members of the Supreme Court. In addition to the number of members of the highest court, some issues such as gender parity and regional representation are also raised in the initiatives.
