The CGPJ is meeting today to renew the TC, but with little chance of reaching an agreement in time


There is every indication that the meeting will serve to fix the procedure without reaching an agreement on the candidates, which would make it difficult to meet the September 13 deadline set by the latest reform promoted by the government.

The General Council of the Judiciary is currently meeting, one day after the President of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court of Justices, Carlos Lesmesdemanded an urgent meeting of Pedro Sánchez and Alberto Núñez Feijóo so that they could reach an agreement to renew the members of the institution he chairs, which he believed was the only constitutional way to lift the blockade.

If there is no match, Lesmes has opened the door to his dismissal and has argued that the law should be changed so that it is the judges who elect the magistrates.

However, everything points to the meeting used to determine the procedure without agreeing on the applicants, which would make it difficult to meet the deadline for the the 13th of September established by the latest reform promoted by the government.

Lesmes called this plenary meeting in July and urged the 18 members of it currently to reach an agreement on the two persons proposed by the CGPJ to replace the four magistrates of the Constitutional Court whose mandate expired on 12 June.

Three years and more than six months is the time when the General Council for the Judiciary in functionssince December 4, 2018. And it is the lack of will to reach an agreement between the two main parliamentary forces keeps the problem sine die. PSOE and PP attack each other to take all responsibility.

The Minister of Justice, Pilar Llopurged the national leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez., on Wednesday feijooto today propose their candidates for members of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) to unlock the extension pending since 2018, accusing the popular of leading their position to the resignation of the chairman of the Governing Body of Judges, Carlos Lesmes.

But from Genoa, they point out that last July they communicated to the Spanish government that the problem is not the names, but the experience of the judges and the criteria of independence.

This Thursday, the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) will meet to appoint the two Constitutional Court magistrates to correspond, but at the moment it does not appear that they will abide by the order.

To denounce the withdrawal of powers, conservative judges would be willing to block the appointments. The government of Spain, for its part, denounces that the People’s Party is behind this movement.
