Senate of the Nation: half sanction to the reform of the Supreme Court of Justice

The ruling party had several sparks with the Supreme Court of Justice During the last years. The Vice President of the Nation, Cristina Kirchner, criticized several times the judges that make up the highest court: Horacio Rosatti, Carlos Rosenkrantz, Juan Carlos Maqueda and Ricardo Lorenzetti. As a counterpart to this, the ruling party tried to modify its scheme and achieved half sanction in the Senate of the Nation.

now from the front of all He promoted a project to reform the number of members of the highest court and that the four judges maintain their position but with others by their side. The idea is that there is one per province with gender parity in addition to the collaborators and external to Justice, although it was reformed. In total there will be 15 judges plus its additional from various areas.

In an extensive session that began around noon in the Senate of the Nation, the initiative of the ruling party was debated and in the evening hours of the same day it was voted after the word of Senator José Mayans. The initiative obtained half a sanction as a result of the 36 positive votes against the 33 negatives of the opposition, who did not have Luis Juez and Alejandra Vigo inside the venue.

It is defined in Deputies

With this half sanction, the project to reform the Supreme Court of Justice will go to the Chamber of Deputies, where the representatives will also debate and vote on this initiative. There the situation is more complex for the Frente de Todos unlike the Senate of the Nation, where there are almost a quarter of the legislators than in the Lower House.

In addition, the opposition presence is higher in Deputies since there are liberal and center-right spaces, unlike the Senate, where there are two more marked antagonistic blocs. Thus, a new debate will begin in a few weeks in which they will define the composition of the Supreme Court of Justice of our country.
