The president’s proposal to fill the vacant attorney general position has not been discussed in the Senate for ten months
The government’s intention to remove the temporary deputy Eduardo Casal Another candidate for attorney general has stalled: two-thirds have yet to materialize in the Senate to appoint a federal judge Daniel Ravikas For this position, nor approval by MPs to amend the Basic Law of the Office of the Prosecutor, which dilutes the majority required to appoint a new lawyer. Rivkas said he would not accept the post if the ruling party reduces the number of votes in the Senate to elect it.
In the president’s environment they want the statement to be dealt with in February, but Senator Kirchnerista Annabelle Fernandez Sagasti, Rivkas, who heads the Accord Committee, has not been summoned to a public hearing. Fernandez Sagasti is one of Christina Kirchner’s swordsmen in the Senate, and dealing with Ravikas’ statement is not an idea that Vice President Christina Kirchner is sympathetic to.
The statement was sent by the executive to the Senate in March of last year, and both Fernandez and his chief of staff, Santiago Cafiero, had confirmed, on more than one occasion, that Ravikas was the “candidate of the government”. But although it obtained the consent of part of the opposition, the two-thirds were not reached. There are commanders from the Todos Front who understand that the conflict is already taking place in Casa Rosada.
One ruling party leader said, “Christina does not trust anyone who is not her candidate.” Nation, Who indicated that Ravikas drew two sensitive reasons for Krishneri: the first section of the Ciccone case against the former vice president Beloved Budo And the illicit enrichment case against the former Secretary of Public Works Jose Lopez.
The same commander indicated that the criminal attorney intervened as a lawyer in both cases. Diego Perotta, Then partner Darius Richards – Deputy Director of Fernando Santibanez – side. Both lawyers were close to the current UAE auditor and judicial operator Javier Fernandez, That as I mentionedNation, He re-established his relationship with the Vice President and with his trusted man in the Justice Department, Juan Martin Mina.
Near Alberto Fernandez They reaffirm Rafecas and are more hopeful; They say the document can be approved if the Senate deals with it in extraordinary sessions. However, there is insufficient consensus in the opposition to endorse Ravikas’ statement, despite the fact that it is Elisa Carrillo He summoned the extremists who form a group together for change in the Senate and those for the Pro to give their support to prevent Christina from imposing another candidate.
The incumbent federal judge, when the most powerful Kirchnerian promoted the controversy to amend the OTP Statute, said that he would not accept the position if the Senate requirements for approval were relaxed. After this statement, Alberto Fernández said publicly that Ravicas was too “principled”, and the judge softened his image.
The Senate Attorney General’s Office statute reform bill passed and is stagnant in Representatives. The ruling party does not have sufficient numbers to approve it, and according to a collaborator with Alberto Fernandez for this method, it is not the president’s intention to impose a judicial agenda in Congress during the election year.
However, the Executive has included Rafecas’ case in the list of matters to be discussed in the extraordinary sessions, as well as the MPF reform project.
The opposition called on Sergio Massa to exclude this project and the judicial reform project promoted by the government from the agenda to extend the scheme of mixed sessions.
Meanwhile, the federal judge in Court No. 3 of the Comodoro B Courts is monitoring what the policy does to its specifications and is awaiting summons to the public hearing of the Senate Agreement Committee.
