The Judiciary Suspended The Appointment Until The Psoe And Pp Negotiated The Renewal Of The Agency

The General Council of the Ministry of Justice (cgpj) suspended the discretionary appointments that will be voted in plenary meeting on Thursday, in view of the possible agreement between the PSOE and the people’s party to extend the term of office that will expire in December 2018. Sources from the Security Council noted that President Carlos lesmes’s decision was “consistent with the previous two (January and July 2020) decisions” when there were signs that an agreement might be reached on the renewal of the agency. REMs promised to continue with the appointment as long as there was a broad consensus, but this time it didn’t happen.

Lesmes’ decision, announced Monday, concerns a number of appointments he plans to put on the agenda of this Thursday’s plenary session, including three Supreme Court judge posts (two civil judges in chamber 1 and one social judge in chamber 4). The appointment of Supreme Court judges is seen as a key position, as the elected judges have been in this position until their retirement, which led the government to propose last fall that the vacancy in the Supreme Court should continue to be filled by the Council, but this was ignored. In addition to these three top positions, the council intends to put to a vote the terms of office of the president of the high court of the Canary Islands and Basque region, the president of the Basque regional social chamber and the president of the courts of Almeria and Salamanca provinces.

There are indeed five military jurisdiction appointments on the agenda (two in Seville, two in Madrid and one in Las Palmas grand Canary), but the agency’s sources argue that these are single candidate positions that do not require parking. The report was also included in the first draft of the comprehensive law on the protection of sexual freedom drafted by three members and will be put to a vote.

The formulation of the agenda of the plenary meeting is entirely within the president’s purview, but in recent days, after the negotiation between PSOE and PP on the re-election of the Council, the internal debate on whether the planned appointment should be stopped has begun. Almost all the progressive vowels and many conservatives believe that they should be consistent with the decisions of January and July 2020, when REMS paralyzed them because of the possibility of reaching an agreement to appoint a new Council (obviously less so than now). In January, after the November 10, 2019 election, pedo Sanchez formed a new government. In July, the Security Council announced the suspension of the appointment, which forced the PSOE and PP to recognize their negotiations. So far, there has been no breakthrough in this negotiation. Now that both sides have negotiated openly, most members of the Council believe that there is no choice but to exclude appointments from the plenary agenda.

Some speakers were in favour of putting those nominations on the agenda, and should Thursday’s negotiations between the two parties yield results or continue, they should be put on the agenda immediately at the beginning of the plenary session. So, based on these vowels, they are fighting for time in case political negotiations fail again. But Remus finally chose to exclude them. Security Council sources pointed out that there are both “consensus” issues and internal differences in this decision, and it is impossible to reach consensus if any seat is chosen to be put to a vote.
