Senate: Kirchnerism will meet tomorrow to approve the expansion of the Supreme Court

The ruling party will convene a session tomorrow in the Senate to debate the court expansiona measure that is driven by Cristina Kirchner in the framework of his confrontation with justice, which worsened with the dispute over the formation of the Council of the Judiciary and the accusation of the prosecutor Diego Luciani against the vice president in the Vialidad case.

The will of the ruling party to take the issue to the precinct tomorrow It was announced this morning by the head of the Frente de Todos bloc, José Mayans (Formosa), to the parliamentary leaders of Together for Change, according to official spokespersons. So far there is no confirmation from officialdom. “We are not going to give a quorum,” anticipated his rejection Luis Naidenoff (Formosa), president of the radical caucus.

The project that will be submitted for discussion is the one promoted by the Peronist governors, which raises the composition of the court to 25 members. However, the opinion signed almost three months ago, on June 29, would undergo modifications in the venue and would end up approving a conformation with a smaller number of members.

With this concession, Kirchnerism would achieve the necessary votes to approve the expansion of the Court, since it will be able to add the support of Adolfo Rodriguez Saa (San Luis), which refused to vote on the project agreed upon by the Peronist leaders with Cristina Kirchner, considering the proposed number of magistrates to be excessive and because at no time did it establish that it would be made up of one judge for each province, as its masterminds maintained when They presented it in the upper house in mid-June.

In addition, with the change in integration, Kirchnerism would also be able to add the votes of Alberto Weretilneck (Together We Are Río Negro), author of a project that raises the members of the Court to 16, and the speaker Clara Vega (La Rioja) who, like Rodríguez Saá, questioned the number of magistrates proposed by the governors.

as anticipated THE NATIONA few days after the failed assassination attempt against Cristina Kirchner, the ultra sector of the ruling party that responds to the vice president swore to advance with its own legislative agenda.

Since the ruling on the governors’ project was signed at the end of June, Kirchnerism had seen its attempts to approve the project frustrated. But the refusal of Rodríguez Saá, Weretilneck and Vega had become an insurmountable obstacle for the plans of hard-line Kirchnerism.

For this reason, and after several weeks of dialogue, the vice president would have given her green light to modify the project with the aim of gathering the number of votes that allows her to approve the expansion of the Court.

The changes began to be discussed on Tuesday night, at a meeting of the Frente de Todos interbloc in which Rodríguez Saá once again raised his refusal to accept a Court of 25 judges, but in which he showed his willingness to change his position. if it was accepted to promote an integration with fewer magistrates.

Before the governors burst in with their proposal, designed to put pressure on the highest court that must rule on the claim of the City of Buenos Aires for the co-participation funds that the ruling party took from it to finance the government of Axel Kicillof, the ruling party discussed three expansion proposals. One by Rodríguez Saá, who returned to the nine members of the 90s; one of the Kirchnerist Silvia Sapag, with 13 judges; and that of Weretilneck, of 16. The final version that would be approved tomorrow would be a summary of the last two initiatives.
