AMLO wants a Supreme Court employee: Burgoa

Constitutional lawyer Francisco Burgoa assured that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador should reject partisan logic if it wants the second shortlist of candidates to appoint a new minister of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) to be approved by the Senate.

During an interview with Aristegui Livepointed out that the three women he proposed in the first shortlist (Bertha Alcalde Luján, Lenia Batres, María Estela Ríos) They don’t have a suitable profile because of his apparent closeness to the president and the national project he led.

Although he was positive that the proposals were considered women, he revealed that in their individual appearances in the Senate no one appeared to have the necessary technical knowledge to be part of the Supreme Court.

Zaldívar’s resignation is unconstitutional: Burgoa

The lawyer also recalled that the efforts to appoint a new minister happened because of “surprising” resignation of Arturo Zaldívar from the Court which he described as unconstitutional.

“It is unconstitutional, because “He never justified the serious cause.”
