The maneuver of the Frente de Todos that Justice rejected
On April 19, by order of the Vice President of the Nation and head of the Senate, the block of the Frente de Todos was divided in the Upper House to, in this way, convert one of the blocks into a “second minority”, and thus removing the possibility of the PRO to take the representative for the body in charge of choosing and sanctioning the judges. Cristina Kirchner named the camper Martín Doñate.
After the maneuver, the national senator for Córdoba, Luis Juez, and the head of the PRO bloc in the Senate, Humberto Schiavoni, filed an appeal in court, which in April of last year was rejected by the federal administrative court judge Pablo Cayssials and the prosecutor Edgardo Tobías Acuña.

In February, the Court dismissed the ruling party’s maneuver for considering the division of the Frente de Todos bloc illegitimate and denied Doñate’s swearing in, but did not order the Senate to appoint Luis Juez.
Given this new ruling by the Justice, the participation of the PRO senator is not yet confirmed since Cristina Kirchner is in charge of appointing the representatives of the Magistracy. With this panorama a new dispute is opened in the Upper House.
