The National Council of the Magistracy (CNM) is scheduled to announce its choice of five new judges to replace the five that are retiring from the 13-member Constitutional Court. The CNM needs to also announce who will be the president of the Constitutional Court. The announcement is expected to be made on Tuesday, 12 December 2023 in the evening.

The CNM has assessed 115 aspirants for the five positions of the retiring judges. Once the five judges are appointed, the CNM then must choose who will be the presiding judge from the 13 judges.

Outgoing president of the court, Milton Ray Guevara has warned: “It is difficult to build a court in 12 years, but it is very easy to destroy it in four.”
