The referents of Together for Change rejected this Wednesday the attempts of the Front of All to discuss in a special session of the Senate the expansion of the Supreme Court of Justice. The project establishes to take the number of judges of the highest court from 5 to 25 members. However, parliamentary agreements led to changes being proposed and one of them is to increase the number of judges to 15.
“The only thing that the Front of All is dedicated to is to seek its impunity. And that is why, given the untimely summons made by the Provisional President of the Senate so that tomorrow the appointment of similar judges and the expansion of the Supreme Court of the Nation will be discussed, Together for Change rejects once again the attempts to attack Justice, which generate a distancing of the institutions from the real problems that we Argentines suffer, “they expressed in a statement.
In addition, they considered that “there is no way to build consensus in the political leadership that today society demands and demands, if the Government itself encourages an agenda that has nothing to do with solving inflation, reducing poverty, ending insecurity. , incorporate vast sectors of our society into the world of work, generate agreements to increase investments in the strategic sectors of our economy, establishing clear and permanent rules”.
From Together for Change they took the opportunity to recall that the Government, in the 32 months that it has been in office, “the prices of the real economy accumulated an increase of 220 percent. In that same period and thanks to the government of Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner, poverty, marginality and insecurity grew.

Together for Change, the main opposition bloc, decided that it will not give a quorum and its representatives will go down to the venue once the ruling party reaches the 37 presences necessary for the discussion to begin.
“Tomorrow we will not give a quorum, but if Kirchnerism achieves it, we will demonstrate on campus how this reform only seeks to attend to the vice president’s private agenda,” said the senator. Martin Lousteau and warned that “there is no technical or political reason that can support this hilarious project that seeks to put the Supreme Court of Justice in the hands of the Peronist governors. If they really wanted to make justice more agile, we would be debating the transfer of justice services to the City”.
Currently, the two ruling blocs that make up the Frente de Todos interbloc add up to 35 senators. It needs to add two allies to achieve a quorum and, in particular, the Federal interbloc has already announced that it will not accompany.
