The Judiciary Agreement Includes Three Supreme Court Judges And Several Names On The List Agreed In 2018

The upcoming agreement between the SPD and the people’s party to extend the General Council of Justice (cgpj) ends the 26 month term of Carlos lesmes’s current body. Delays in extending the Council’s mandate have been common in the body’s 40 year history, but so far the mandate has never been extended so long. In December 2018, the agreement was supposed to be renewed in time, but after Ignacio Cosi ó, then speaker of the Senate people’s group, leaked the news and Manuel Marchena resigned as chairman of the body, the agreement between the socialists and the people suddenly broke down, He believes that under the leadership of marcena, the people’s party will continue to control the Criminal Court of the Supreme Court “from behind.”.

However, this agreement is the basis of the agreement currently negotiated. According to the source of the consultation, in addition to the president and some vowels, the names proposed to sit on the Council are the names of PSOE and PP candidates more than two years ago.

The process to be completed now is the lesmes process, which started in the summer of 2018, When he wrote to the then speaker of Congress (Anna pastor) and the president of the Senate (PIO Garcia escudro), he told them that he was starting an updated mechanism, which set a deadline for judges who wanted to be spokesmen in the judiciary to submit their candidatures. In September of the same year, lesmes submitted to the court a list of 51 serving judges who were either recognized by one of the three major professional associations or independently recognized by 25 professional members. On this 50 member list, political parties must elect 12 vowel judges.

Aspiring judges. In 2018, parliamentary groups have reached an agreement on who will be a member of this quota; they will now come up with many common names. Some will fall, some will come in, but those who come in must come from the list of 51 judges sent by Remus.

According to sources consulted, other names include Supreme Court justice Jose Maria Montero (recognized by the conservative judicial professional association APM) and angel arozamena (considered progressive but without an association). According to these sources, the agreement, including the third judge of the high court, ines welta or Jose Maria derrigo, came from the third chamber without the support of any association.

In this quota, progressives also support the candidacy of judge Esther Ehrlich, President of the high court of Navara Province, judge of the high court of Andalusia, judge imakulada Montalban, and judge Jose Maria Fernandez sejo, who served as members of the Council from 2008 to 2013, Judges who ensure that the EU court allows judges to stop deportation; and Ignacio Espinosa, judge of the larioha high court.

In this round of voting, there was also a former MP from meadows Victoria Russell. The people’s party insisted on rejecting her. In any case, she was no longer qualified to serve as an active judge because she was a government representative against gender based violence, so she had to leave the post and start running again. The socialists also defended the presence of national court judge Fernando Andrew, but the source noted that the people’s party refused to vote for him because they believed he had a close relationship with state attorney general Dolores Delgado and had been taken to the b-box court.

On the conservative side, the PP supports Maria tardon, a national high court judge, the Francisco de Vitoria Association and Alejandro abascal of APM, Gema Espinosa, a former president and independent judge of the judicial College of Barcelona, and APM。

Jurist. The two sides also agreed on eight vowels, who will join the Council with a quota of legal experts. Unlike a judge, in this case, it is not part of a predetermined list, but the panel can come up with any qualified name (a lawyer of recognized competence, serving for more than 15 years), However, the source pointed out that the elected candidates would “exceed 70%” match the nominations of the people’s party and the Social Democratic Party in 2018. According to these sources, the PP has placed prosecutors Rosa Rubio and PSOE (supreme attorney general Luis mart í n Contreras) and prosecutor pilar fern á ndez on the table. In this quota, we can also include jurists proposed by us and accepted by the people’s party.

The first president. The agreement between PSOE and PP also provides that the next will be the first Council to be chaired by a woman, although the source said vowels will not be given closed names as usual, but “two or three” options from which new council members must choose. The Women Judges of the Supreme Court were nominated as pilar Teso, Anna Ferrer and Lourdes alasti; or nkanacion Roca, who currently serves on the constitutional court. Until today, the first council was born with 10 male and 10 female vowels, even though the resignation of Merc é pigem broke equality.

Minorities. The two major parties, PSOE and PP, have always held a majority in parliament, although the seats of minorities, especially nationalists (PNV and CIU) and IU, are usually reserved. These groups are sometimes part of the negotiations, while others, as may now happen, occupy the seats that the socialists and the people have given up. Before the end of the two party system, the distribution of Parliament generally reflected the distribution of Parliament, in which the socialist party and the people’s party occupied the vast majority of members and senators. However, the current distribution of seats is the most diversified in democracy, but it is foreseeable that this situation will be underrepresented in the new judge management body, where the two main parties plan to cover almost all voices.
