The National Assembly unanimously decided to extend for 72 hours the process of calling for applications for the new magistrates who will make up the Supreme Court of Justice.
Deputy Giuseppe Alessandrello, president of the Parliament’s Electoral Nominations Committee, informed that said extension will end next Friday, February 18, a period in which those professionals interested in participating in the selection of inspectors and directors of the magistracy school.
He affirmed that applicants from different regions of the country requested a little more time, motivated by the fact that they must present documents from universities “which are not easy to require, some documents must be apostilled and others must be notarized”, stressed Alessandrello.
He referred that only this February 15, the committee received a total of 160 applications, so, given the enormous number of applications, this extension was requested.
It is worth noting that after the total reception of the applications, the list of candidates will be published and the process of verification of credentials and challenges will begin.
So far, 362 applicants have applied, who after verification and challenges must attend the interview process, which will take place at the Bolivian Museum in Caracas.
Once all the selection stages have been completed, the list of final applicants will be published, which will be delivered to the Citizen Power, whose members will have up to 10 days to verify it and then return it to the National Assembly and the Electoral Nominations Committee, who will present it in session to select the new members of the Judiciary and its entities.
