Confusion in Congress: the members of the Magistracy do not know when they take office and wait for a sign from Justice

Luis Juez announced that on Thursday he will file a complaint against Cristina Kirchner for disobeying the Supreme Court ruling.

The deputies and senators designated for the Council of the Magistracy They await the call to swear in before the Supreme Court of Justice, after the assumption of 11 of the total of 20 representatives that make up the body in charge of choosing and controlling judges.

Meanwhile, Senator Louis Judge confirmed that on Thursday he will present the lawsuit against Cristina Kirchner for “breach of the duties of a public official and disobedience to authority”as this newspaper had anticipated.

The complaint against the vice president is for not complying with the ruling of the highest court of justice that annulled the designation of ultra K Martin Donate and questioned the maneuver of dividing the pro-government bloc to keep the representative for the second minority.

But this Tuesday, after the president of the Court and also head of the Magistracy, Horace Rosatti, the representatives of the judges, lawyers, academics and the envoy of the national Government were sworn in, some signal was expected on the date on which the eight congressional advisers will take office. But from the Court they responded that still there is no date for the swearing in of political members.

From the kirchnerism a low profile was maintained after the session of the Senate of last week, through which the appointments of Doñate were endorsed in the compound together with those of the official members María Pilatti Vergara and Mariano Recalde, and the radical Eduardo Vischi. There were also no statements from Deputies, where Vanesa Siley and Rodolfo Tailhade, both from the front of allthe radical Roxana Reyes and the larretista Alvaro González.

According to parliamentary sources there were “a higher order” so that none of those appointed by Congress on behalf of the Frente de Todos speak about the situation in the Judicial Council. “They asked us to remain silent,” they confided from the ruling party. While in the opposition they await a definition of the amparo appeal presented last week by a judge to stop the assumption of Doñate.

Opposition spokesmen indicated that on Thursday there could be some definition of the date on which the new representatives of Congress will be sworn in before the body, but no one risks confirming whether it includes Senator K, since a Court resolution annulled his previous designation because the division of the pro-government bloc was ordered after the ruling that declared the law of the Council of the Magistracy approved in 2006 unconstitutional.

For his part, the Judge ratified that he will present the criminal complaint against Cristina Kirchner for “failure to comply with the duties of a public official and disobedience to authority” by not complying with the decision of the highest court that rejected the entry of Senator K and described it as a “ruse “the participation of the block to stay with a third place in the Magistracy.

Although in Juntos they understand that the complaint is “anecdotal” there were internal voices that encouraged the need to support the Court and uphold the ruling from the beginning of the month. “How do we want to govern this country if we do not uphold a ruling from the Court. Let’s be coherent because they ruled as we wanted and said things that even we did not encourage,” reflected an important legislator.

But in Juntos they are still protesting the vice president’s maneuver because they understood that what could have been “one night stand” by dividing the pro-government bench into the blocks of the National and Popular Front and Citizen Unity, it became “something very grotesque” by insisting on the appointment of Doñate.

In that analysis, they also pointed out that the vice president’s decision breaks the balance of parliamentary representation in the body in charge of appointing judges, since with 48% of the seats in the Senate, the ruling party ends up with 75% of places in the Council of the Magistracy.
