18/11/2012 - The National Lawyers Union today urged the executive to open the process as soon as possible for the selection of the next Supreme Court justice to replace Anibal Salas, whose term expires Dec. 31.
According to the group, the process needs to begin soon to comply with procedures for public consultation.
They also called on the executive to exercise an "equal or greater level of transparency" that was exhibited in the selection of Heriberto Araúz as the judge of the Electoral Tribunal.
The group said the selection process in that instance lasted six weeks and resulted in 47 people being considered for the position.
President Ricardo Martinelli has said that he will convene a special session of the National Assembly to ratify the new judge
