President of Mexico’s Supreme Court disrespects Lopez Obrador

President of Mexico’s Supreme Court disrespects Lopez Obrador

Mexico City, Feb 6 (Prensa Latina) The President of the Supreme Court of Justice of Mexico, Norma Piña, showed her anti-government stance when she remained seated in the Presidium when Chief Executive Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was introduced.

The event occurred during the official ceremony for the 106th anniversary of the 1917 Constitution of the country, held the day before in the state of Queretaro.

The disrespectful attitude of the official – openly an adversary of the president and imposed by the majority enjoyed by the political opposition in the judicial body – was criticized today by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in his morning press conference.

He said that this disrespect of the lady fills him with pride because it means that the government is doing well and is doing the right thing, even though he criticized something that, in his opinion, had never happened before in this country and Piña was the protagonist yesterday.

The presiding judge, in her speech at yesterday’s ceremony, fired all the darts she could, indirectly but precisely, against the government in a pretended defense of ‘judicial independence’, of the most questioned organism in the country for its open corruption and submission to the conservative National Action Party.

A month after being elected as the first woman to head the SCJN, Piña emphasized that an independent judiciary is also a legacy that the fundamental law transmits to us, and therefore it has the task of preserving and strengthening it, otherwise, we run the risk of undermining this guarantee.

On the other hand, Lopez Obrador stated that in the face of the ‘shameful setback’ of the ’36 years of neoliberal policies’, his government has promoted reforms to return to the Constitution ‘the greatness of its original spirit’.

At the emblematic Teatro de la Republica in Queretaro, where the political class gathered, López Obrador assured that, in spite of the modifications, ‘the 1917 Constitution has not died, it lives on in the transformation of the free, fair, equal, democratic and fraternal Mexico of our days’.

This Monday in his morning press conference he insisted on the subject where he reminded that after a historical preamble on the emergence of the Constitution of Queretaro, it is regrettable that in 1983 a long period was opened, until 2018, of modifications that brought to the country setbacks in the defense of sovereignty and the welfare of the people.
