The renewal of a third of the constitution is one step closer. The PSOE will present a bill this Friday, which is being urgently processed to allow the government to choose the two judges it must choose to serve on the Guarantee Court and the judiciary, both of its own. The norm as advanced eldiario.es and EL PAÍS, will allow the General Council of the Judiciary to make the appointments even during its term of office.

On June 12, the mandates of four of the 12 members of the Surveillance Court, whose renewal corresponds to the Executive (two) and the governing body of judges (two others), expired. As published by EL PAÍS, the Constitutional Court was preparing to block the government’s intention to appoint two of the panel’s judges, without waiting for the General Council of the Judiciary to choose the two to appoint at the next renewal of must be the maximum interpreter of the Magna Carta.

The outright renewal of the constitution was among the government’s plans in the event that the PP further delays reaching an agreement with the executive. The renewal of the constitutional organs has become a very long chess game between the two major parties PSOE and PP, in which the population has kept the General Council of the Judiciary blocked for almost an entire legislature.

In an absolutely unprecedented manner, the PP blocked the General Council of the Judiciary for almost an entire legislature. The Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and his direct negotiators on the matter – at that time Félix Bolaños, Minister of the Presidency – tried everything with Pablo Casado. The pact was signed practically twice, and at the last moment the PP leader gave in under pressure from the conservative world. They do it again with Alberto Núñez Feijóo, but with the aim that if the PP delays further, the executive would directly appoint the two judges that correspond to it in the Constitutional Court, and thus change the majority without going to the PP waiting . The decision was expected according to the Andalusians on Sunday as it happened.

The Constitutional Court used the visit of EU Values ​​and Transparency Commissioner Vera Jourova on June 16 to rule on the need for a short-term agreement between the government and the PP for its renewal. The President of the Court, Pedro González-Trevijano, and the Vice-President of the Guarantee Court, Juan Antonio Xiol, stressed that both had reached an agreement with the EU Commissioner that when changing four judges, the Constitution had to be respected “in its entirety”. , a phrase that alludes to the fact that the statutory provision is for the Constitutional Court to be renewed by thirds every three years.A day later, four former justice ministers – former Socialist ministers Juan Fernando López Aguilar and Juan Carlos Campo and the popular Alberto – agreed Ruiz Gallardón and Rafael Catalá – in an act by the Madrid Bar Association, that they take into account the parliamentary agreements not only to allow the unblocking of the governing body of judges.
