The opening of the judicial year and political news, live

This Wednesday King Felipe VI presides over the opening of the judicial year in the Supreme Court. The event will also be attended by the president of the General Council of the Judiciary, Carlos Lesmes, and the supreme prosecutor, Ángeles Sánchez Conde, who will replace the new state attorney general, Álvaro García Ortiz, who has tested positive for COVID. The CGPJ has spent almost four years with its mandate expired and the opening of this year is also marked by negotiations to agree on the names of the two magistrates that the Council must appoint to the Constitutional Court.

Both things, the blockade and the negotiations for the TC, are expected to mark Lesmes' speech, which for years has been characterized by the "unsustainable" situation in which the judiciary finds itself and the call for political forces to reach an agreement.

Beyond the Judiciary, this day the First Vice President and Minister of Economic Affairs, Nadia Calviño, appears in Congress, appears in the Congress commission to analyze the economic and financial situation.
