In his morning press conference in Baja California, the president said the same happens with the National Electoral Institute (NEI), which also requires cleaning to eradicate corruption.
However, he added, that court was formed in such a way that only the judges can solve the crisis and it is very difficult for the president of the Supreme Court of Justice, Arturo Zaldivar, to intervene, because it is an autonomous institution in quotation marks since they were appointed by the National Action and Institutional Revolutionary parties.
They were put there by the PRI and PAN and now both should come forward and explain how they appointed them with such a lack of integrity, of principles, that is happening at the moment. That is why I say again they should all resign, and parties should stop doing this, he reiterated.
They appointed them, Lopez Obrador pointed out, and then extended their term in office to all of them. However, now, Zaldívar’s mandate as head of the Supreme Court is extended, they say it is unconstitutional, which they did not denounce for their seven Court judges.
