For this reason, he affirmed that the purpose of creating these spaces is for the population to find out about the proposal and the operation of the Judiciary during the coming months so that they can, with all these tools, give their opinion during the consultation.
The initiative for the ministers of the SCJN to be elected at the polls was an idea proposed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on May 9, when he pointed out that the federal Judiciary “is rotten” and “has no remedy.”
The federal president then stressed that before sending the reform initiative to the Judiciary, it is necessary to obtain a qualified majority in Congress, that is, it is necessary to reach 334 legislators to achieve constitutional changes.
