The former Secretary of the Interior thus entered the controversy between the Judiciary and the Executive Branch, which deepened after the election of Judge Norma Piña, a staunch adversary of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and a stumbling block to important decrees and laws such as public works and electoral reform.
López gave a long interview to La Jornada in which he touched on the subject of transformation and the reforms it implies in national life.
Regarding the latter, he said that reform of the State, yes, to continue with the transformation, but first reform of the Judicial Power, because Mexico cannot and should not continue to be the “empire of the judges”.
He argued that it is necessary to go deep. The reform of the Judiciary is a pending issue that President López Obrador has admitted because there is no justice in this country. The Supreme Court can be everything, have everything, but it is not a fair Supreme Court, he assured.
In his opinion, the way of electing judges, the ministers, should be debated, it would be a part of it, but the reform cannot stop there, even the way in which the Judicial Power operates has to be changed.
