Ecuador Urges Judges to Assume Posts

Quito, Nov 29 (Prensa Latina) The 21 former Ecuadorian judges chosen to continue labors in the new National Justice Court (CNJ) have 24 hours to get to their posts, according to a decision from the Constitutional Court (CC).

The CC recognized the October 29 drawing held at the National Electoral Council, through which former ministers-judges elected from a group of 31 those to join the CNJ.

The resolution grants those former judges a 24-hour deadline, as of the Official Registry publishes their sentence Monday.

Those elected ministers must assume their posts in the Justice Council Tuesday, otherwise the empty posts will be occupied by other former judges and presidents from provincial judiciary courts.

So far, only one judge accepted to continue his function in the new entity.

CC president Patricio Pazmino stated that the CNJ will be in charge of appointing the president of the organization and determining the conformation of halls.

The country expects with this decision the integration of the Justice Court next week, whose members will be temporarily in their posts until the election of the new ministers-judges in 2009.
