You are currently viewing The Court swore in eleven new members of the Judicial Council

The representatives of the Council of the Magistracy for the academic, legal, judges and the National Executive Branch they were sworn in before the head of the body and Supreme Court judge, Horacio Rosatti, and will have a mandate until November 2026.

The council has eight more places to occupy, those of the Legislative Branch, but that will be a matter to be dealt with by the Court in a special agreement next Thursday, to review the appointments voted by the Senate.

The Senate voted last week by unanimous vote appointments of María Pilatti Vergara, Mariano Recalde and Martín Doñate for the ruling party and the radical Eduardo Vischi for the opposition. The vote occurred in the absence of the Juntos por el Cambio bloc that opposed dealing with those appointments, replicating an old claim to obtain a second seat for the minority.

The ruling party’s vote in the Upper House responded to a move by the Supreme Court, which on November 8 decided to revoke the seat currently held by Senator Doñate –after the rest of the judicial instances said otherwise–. The Frente de Todos considered that it was about an interference of the Judiciary in the Legislative and decided to return to support Doñate with a new designation.

However, the Supreme Court once again has the cards in its hand and called an agreement for Thursday, where will again analyze a decision of the Legislative Power.

Together for Change that was favored by the decision of the highest court –by ordering Senator Luis Juez to occupy that chair– also played his cards in the Senate session on November 16, by emptying the venue and announcing that he would re-proceed the appointment.

The opposition maintains that the ruling party ignored a ruling by the Court, but that decision of the highest court was linked to the period that ended on November 18. Therefore, according to the position of the opposition, the supreme should once again intervene in the decision of the Senate to modify the appointments.

The directors who were sworn in this Tuesday

Apart from the conflict over the representatives of the Senate, Rosatti took an oath to Hugo Galderisi and Guillermo Tamarit, representing the scientific and academic field; a Miguel Piedecasas, Héctor Recalde, Jimena de la Torre and María Fernanda Vázquez, for the legal profession; Diego Barroetaveña, Alberto Lugones, María Alejandra Provítola and Agustina Díaz Corderoby the judges, and Geronimo Ustarrozon behalf of the National Executive Branch.

The other three judges of the Court were present at the ceremony, which was held in the Bermejo Room of the Palacio de Tribunales, Carlos Rosenkrantz, Juan Carlos Maqueda and Ricardo Lorenzetti.

Those who expected to be summoned to take the oath are the representatives of the lower house, where without conflict between the opposition and the ruling party, the legislators of the Frente de Todos were designated Vanessa Siley and Rodolfo Tailhade, of the PRO alvaro gonzalez -ally of Horacio Rodríguez Larreta-, and radicalism Roxana Reyes.
