Mexican Senate rejects the Supreme Court shortlist presented by AMLO

For the second time, the Senate rejected the shortlist presented by AMLO to occupy the position of minister of the SCJN.

The Senate of the Republic has rejected the shortlist presented by Andrés Manuel López Obrador to occupy the position of minister of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), so said designation of the new minister passes into the direct hands of the federal president.

So the SCJN will have to choose between Bertha María Alcalde Luján, Lenia Batres Guadarrama and Eréndira Cruz Villegas. Likewise, AMLO is the first president who is left entirely with the responsibility of appointing a Supreme Court minister, as stated in article 96 of the Constitution.

media point out that the vote occurred in a first and second round, the last of which was in which Lenia Batres received 54 votes in favor, Alcalde Luján 16 votes in favor and Eréndira Cruz 2 votes in favor; while 46 votes were received against the entire shortlist and 3 votes were annulled, so the qualified majority required to approve any of the profiles was not reached.

Before the start of the vote, Senator Ricardo Monreal said that until yesterday a “comprehensive agreement” was being built with the Citizen Movement parliamentary group to review the profiles of several appointments, including the missing positions in the Superior Chamber of the Electoral Tribunal of the Judicial Branch of the Federation and the appointment of the new Minister of the Court, but in the end it did not materialize.
