The conservative sector of the General Council of the Judiciary continues to have problems finding candidates for the Constitutional Court. According to legal sources, the magistrate of the Supreme Court Pablo Llarena, known for being the instructor of the procshas communicated to several members of this group that he has no interest in being proposed as a magistrate to the court of guarantees.

The new approach of the members of the majority sector, after the president of the Supreme Court and the CGPJ, Carlos Lesmes, has included the appointments for the Constitutional in the order of the Plenary next Thursday, has been unsuccessful.

In the conservative sector, they have problems finding suitable High Court judges to occupy a place in the TC. Llarena already declined last August to be a magistrate of the court of guarantees – through an informal approach – and now she has once again transmitted the same idea to different members of the governing body of the judges.

The judge of procs explained that having been president of the Professional Association of the Judiciary (APM) it seems coherent to him not to leave the Supreme Court at a time when the associations in general and the APM in particular are demanding the renewal of the CGPJ and the change of the election system to overcome the current situation of blockade and democratic anomaly.

Together with the offer to be members of the High Court, the president of the Criminal Chamber, Manuel Marchena, and the magistrate of this same Chamber, Antonio del Moral.

Added to this circumstance is the fact that the Technical Office of the CGPJ has indicated in a report, released this Friday, that the substitute for Lesmes in the face of his eventual resignation would be Francisco Marn Castanpresident of the Civil Chamber of the High Court, a name that the conservative sector was considering as a candidate and that may be left out of the TC if the president resigns and the Plenary chooses to follow the recommendations of the aforementioned document.

The arguments of the aforementioned text, prepared at the request of Lesmes, have generated controversy in a large group of members, who believe it is the responsibility of the Plenary to decide who should replace the president before his imminent departure.
