Congress: JNE decisions are not to be reviewed by TC

without comments

On Thursday, December 1, Congress, in committee of the whole, approved — after a long delay and extensive public discussions among the JNE, TC, members of Congress and constitutional experts (refer to our archives), that decisions made by the National Electoral Jury could not be reviewed by the Constutitional Tribunal. Congress voted: 64 votes in favour, 7 against and 4 abstentions. This decision would guarantee jurisdictional autonomy and independence to the JNE, according to Congress.
