Congress passes legislation to dismantle the meritocracy of the Office of the Ombudsman

On the Commission on the Constitution of Congress, chaired by Fujimori’s Martha Moyano, there is now a legal prediction that will strike the Office of the Ombudsman by canceling public competitions for senior positions. The proposal will also affect the election process of future members of the National Board of Justice (JNJ).

The project was presented on October 20 by none other than the same ombudsman elected under the Fujicerronism alliance, Joshua Gutierrez.

In a previous move against the meritocracy system, this defender has canceled the internal legal requirements to facilitate the appointment of the current deputy of the constitution. Elizabeth Zea.

Josué Gutiérrez then took the next step by presenting the project to avoid the public competition required by the current Organic Law of the Office of the Ombudsman for senior deputy positions.

The current law of the Office of the Ombudsman establishes the following: “The deputies will be selected through public competition according to the provisions indicated in the regulations approved by the Ombudsman.”

On the other hand, the rule that Congress now intends to approve states the following: “The positions of deputy defenders are free to appoint and dismiss through the ombudsman, who observes the profile and suitability for the position.

Against JNJ

On the other hand, the prediction of the law includes the second proposal of Joshua Gutierrezto to annul the public competition for the selection of the new technical secretary of the special commission that oversees the selection of future members of the National Board of Justice (JNJ).

The current law specifies that there must be a public competition, and only once in the first JNJ election process will there be a direct appointment for the aforementioned technical position. Now, instead of enforcing the rule, the advocate and his allies in Congress are preparing to annul the meritocracy.

Therefore, the defender chosen by the current Congress will be able to have a more free reign by placing a person he trusts in the technical secretariat for the selection of the JNJ, a significant example of the appointment of judges and prosecutors, if one considers that the leaders of some parties present in Congress are facing proceedings for corruption and/or money laundering.
