The Supreme rejects suspending Mozo as interim president of the CGPJ


The Supreme Court (TS) has agreed to reject the precautionary measure in which it was requested to suspend Rafael Mozo as interim president of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ), as reported by the high court.

The Sixth Section of the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the TS has already rejected the very precautionary measures requested by the vocal Wenceslao Olea and the secretary of the CGPJ, José Luis de Benito, in their respective appeals against the enthronement of Mozo.

The member and the secretary of the CGPJ challenged the agreement adopted on October 13 by the Plenary of the CGPJ, with which 16 of the 18 members promoted Mozo as "alternate president" of the Council for being the oldest member.

This decision caused a bicephaly in the Judiciary, since while Mozo acts as interim president of the CGPJ, magistrate Francisco Marín Castán does the same in the TS, two positions that in normal circumstances are exercised by the same person.

The succession conflict broke out on Sunday, October 9, when Carlos Lesmes announced his resignation as president of the CGPJ and the TS due to the lack of tangible progress in the negotiations between PSOE and PP to renew the governing body of judges, as had warned during the opening of the judicial year, on September 7.
