Every day, at 8 a.m., the official PSOE account on the social network CGPJ is “blocked by PP.” This Friday is the 1,784th day. Despite being one of the fetish issues of the left, in the agreement between PSOE and Sumar, there are not many references to the judicial issue. They only promised that “they will prevent disloyalty to the constitution of some political actors that affects the honor” of CGPJ.
There is no word in favor of the depoliticization law of justice that the PP demanded to renew the government of the judges, even though the possible new executive is more in the interest of Feijóo, who agreed to a change that would allow him, among other actions, to replace the chief justice. Currently, this position falls to the interim Francisco Martín, after the resignation of Carlos Lesmes last year. The High Court is the summit of the system of challenges in Spain and, therefore, the most responsible for the interpretation of jurisprudence.
Clear the CGPJ
Between PSOE and Sumar The exchange of documents has begun to try to find the formula that will prevent them from avoiding change. On the tables of the PSOE and the acting government, there is already a proposal from the party of Yolanda Diaz suggestingvacating the CGPJ from power and referring them to the Ministry of Justice, like the appointment of some judges.
Those from Sumar say they are inspired by models from France, Italy, or Portugal. This means that, for example, the Judicial School can operate under the umbrella of the Ministry of Justice, as is the case in Italy. Also, some transfers depend on the minister on duty instead of the CPGJ. Sumar’s proposal has not yet been answered by the PSOE, which keeps studying it.
Government partners defend that “this solution is more peaceful” than those made during the previous legislature. In his wrong way, Sánchez made a law to deprive the CGPJ of its powers while it was in office. A few months ago, they were fixed by challenging his reform and creating another way, even introducing some amendments to the reform of the Penal Code to change the majority of the Constitutional Tribunes, something that was annulled by the Court of Guarantees itself.
