MADRID, 24 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The members of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) have promised to hold what will be the first vote on the two candidates for the Constitutional Court (TC) that the CGPJ is responsible for carrying out during the ordinary plenary session set for December 22, although The sources of the governing body of the judges consulted by Europa Press stress that this does not imply that the two applicants will be chosen that same day.
According to the aforementioned sources, the 18 members that currently make up the CGPJ have reached this commitment during the ordinary plenary session held this Thursday, which had the issue of appointments for the guarantee court on the agenda.
This movement occurs just one day after the negotiations between the progressive and conservative blocks of the CGPJ ran aground again, because the former rejected the change in method proposed by the latter.
The progressive sector launched a first list with nine applicants that it finally reduced to one: José Manuel Bandrés. At Wednesday's meeting, the progressive members insisted on maintaining Bandrés's candidacy, although the conservatives now propose to negotiate the two names jointly.
