The president of the Constitutional Court (TC), Cándido Conde-Pumpido, has
commissioned the preparation of a shock plan to update, within a period of six months, the processing of the amparo appeals, which is currently seriously delayed, as reported by the TC.
This crash plan will be drawn up by a work team made up of the
general secretary of the court, Andrés Gutiérrez, the deputy general secretary, Juan Carlos Duque, and the lawyer attached to the president, Ignacio Sánchez Yllera.
The implementation of the aforementioned plan was agreed this Wednesday in a working meeting held in the office of the president, and which was attended by all the coordinating lawyers of the various specialties that work in the court (civil, criminal, social, contentious-administrative and parliamentary ).
To collaborate in this update, the government plenary agreed to hire eight new collaborating lawyers, whose call has already been sent to the Official State Gazette.
In this way, the new president of the TC wants to fulfill his purpose of accelerating the resolution of a hundred pending amparo appeals, among which are those that refer to the most progressive laws of the coalition government and that have been appealed by the PP and Vox.
Cándido Conde-Pumpido announced this Tuesday, during the first plenary session of the new court, his work plan for the coming months. For the first plenary session of February (7, 8 and 9) the appeal of the PP for the abortion law approved in 2010, a matter that has been in a drawer for almost 13 years.
For the second plenary session in February (on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd) the TC will decide on the appeal of the PP and Vox for the euthanasia law.
For the first plenary session in March (on the 7th, 8th and 9th) the plenary session will resolve the PP’s appeal against the current education law, known as the Celaá Law after the minister who promoted it. The presentation will be in charge of the new magistrate Laura Diez.
Laura Díez abstains
Precisely this magistrate, proposed by the Government, has decided to refrain from writing the presentation that Conde-Pumpido had commissioned of her in said plenary session on Tuesday on the unconstitutionality appeals presented by the PP and Ciudadanos against the Catalan law that eliminates 25% of Spanish in the classrooms.
The decision to abstain is motivated by the fact that Laura Díez signed last summer opinions of the Council of Statutory Guarantees of Cataloniaas vice-president of the body, in favor of not imposing said percentage of Spanish in the classrooms of the autonomous community.
In another order of things, at the level of next January 24, the TC will decide on the admission to processing of the Vox appeal against the law of ‘only yes is yes’whose presentation will be by magistrate Ramón Sáez.
