Horacio Rosatti during the National Meeting of Federal Justice 20220512

One week after the new Judicial Council with the approval of short lists and the definition of the names that will integrate the Commissions after the ruling of the Supreme Court, the Congress continues with the debate of the pro-government initiative of 17 members and without the president of the Supreme Court. The project will be defended today by the Minister of Justice Martin Soria.

The wallet holder is quoted to expose this Wednesday June 22 at 11 in the morning before the plenary session of Constitutional Affairs and Justice commissions.

According to what PERFIL learned, Martín Soria’s position will be aimed at defending the Council model that does not include the President of the Court within the body in charge of the administration of the Judicial Power and of sanctioning the judges.

The Supreme Court rejected the proposals of Cristina Kirchner in the trial for Vialidad

The pro-government project already has the half sanction of the Senate, a territory where it advanced relatively easily due to the number of favorable votes it got in that territory. However, the scenario in Deputies is more complicated since the official power is limited by opposing votes.

“Soria is coming today and from your presentation we will have something clearer“, One of the national deputies who participates in the legislative work that seeks to promote the sanction told this medium. Until now there have been four informative meetings and twenty judicial references have been exposed.

With the Deputy Minister of Justice John Martin Mena present, there are those who expect a fiery speech from Mena addressed to the Supreme Court that comes from rejecting the proposals of the vice president Cristina Kirchner in the framework of the Road Cause.

What will happen to the project

While the half sanction did not have too many problems, in the Chamber of Deputies the progress of the project presents greater complexity since the front of all it does not have the necessary votes to make it happen.

Horacio Rosatti, the president of the Supreme Court and of the Judicial Council.

The ruling party has 118 votes of its own and it is speculated that he could have another six allies. However, it will be necessary to open a negotiation to try to achieve at least five foreign votes to achieve the quorum of 129 necessary to enable the debate in plenary.

For now, all eyes are on the Federal Interblock, a space that has eight members of Identidad Bonaerense, the socialism of Santa Fe and Córdoba Federal. Those votes could pave the way for the ruling party or bow to the opposition tendency and block the debate on the project.

Governors want a Supreme Court with 25 judges

On the front sidewalk Together for Change has 116 votes against which the four that respond to the libertarian space are added.

The pro-government initiative was presented in December of last year, one day before the Supreme Court issued a ruling that declared the unconstitutionality of the previous formation of 13 members of the Judicial Council. The debate on the pro-government project was truncated for several weeks in part because of the inmate in the Frente de Todos that prevented the treatment in the extraordinary summer.

The pro-government project raises the number of members of the Council from 13 to 17 and establishes the creation of four regions with the aim of having federal representation.

In the meantime, The days passed and April 15 arrived without a new law. That day the plan that the courtiers gave expired so that a new conformation of 20 members or the one established by a new law that sets parameters of balance between technical and political classes enters into force. The first thing happened and it didn’t take long for a war to break out between Kirchnerism and the four courtiers.
