MEMBERS OF THE SYSTEM
The coordinator of the State Commission for Justice, the Attorney General of the Administration, Rigoberto González, praised the first phase of interviews, held last week, because at least eight of the ten postulates were or are currently part of the justice administration system.
“In this first group of interviewees, those people who administer justice on behalf of all of us and who aspire to reach that maximum level of the Judicial Branch, have become visible within the system of administration of justice,” González said.
He said that this is one of the achievements that was achieved with the State for Justice Pact, by proposing this type of process that allows citizens, the media, to know the candidates and can also see all those qualities that some of them have and that, from there, those who have to make the decision have the highest reference and as much information as possible.
