Panama - A step towards cleansing the Supreme Court
Finally, the Judicial Branch will do what it should have done years ago: allow interested parties to participate in competitions to occupy the positions that the plenary session of the Supreme Court of Justice has declared vacant.
Previous administrations have taken the most convenient path for their interests and that of their relatives, appointing officials who respond to the one who appointed them, instead of the justice system.
Hundreds of positions were filled 'one to one', with the dire consequences that we have suffered. The Executive has announced millionaire funds to carry out the ambitious meritocracy plan and we hope that it will fulfill its promises, as this country is on the verge of collapse due to the anarchy that reigns in justice.
We know that the system that will be developed is not perfect, but it will undoubtedly be much better than the one we currently have, which is notoriously inoperative and a complete disgrace.
The implementation of the judicial career will help to clean up this organ of the State and it is likely that, for the first time in a long time, we will begin to see a light that will help us to trust again. We hope that this is the beginning of true justice in Panama.
