Lorenzetti: “This Court will always maintain the principles of the Constitution”
February 26, 2013
The Supreme Court President Ricardo Lorenzetti opened the judicial year and said in his speech, “The high court will always respect the principles of the Constitution.”
“The Court should not rule, must be consistent with the majority of the people, with the executive and legislative branches. We never said to political power what to do, we mark what is contrary to the Constitution,” said the magistrate.
“The decisions of the majority can be declared unconstitutional” if they generate a conflict “with the basic principles,” he added.
And said: “The Court had more changes in five or six years in its history. We agree that the judiciary has to change, for the benefit of the people. We have changed, we have approached the judges.”
“We have to make it simpler and easier to call for justice,” he asked. “We need legal reform to accelerate the processes of justice. We seek to be more mediation and less judgmental,” he said.
“It is necessary to appoint more judges and reflecting efforts for no delays. The judge must give way to passive active judge,” Lorenzetti said.
