Blume sent a project to the TC to admit Olaechea’s competition lawsuit
The Plenary Session of the Constitutional Court will meet on Thursday to evaluate the appeal presented by the head of the Permanent Commission, as well as the admission of Judge Gonzalo Ortiz de Zevallos in said body.
Ernesto Blume, president of the Constitutional Court (TC), sent to the magistrates of this body a project to admit the competence lawsuit filed by Pedro Olaechea, head of the Permanent Commission, against the Government’s decision to dissolve the Congress.
This Thursday, the Plenary Session of the TC will meet to discuss the appeal raised by Olaechea Álvarez-Calderón that includes the request for a precautionary measure to invalidate the supreme resolution with which the President of the Republic, Martín Vizcarra, announced the closure of the Parliament.
It will also discuss the admission of the request for the incorporation of lawyer Gonzalo Ortiz de Zevallos as magistrate of that body.
Blume explained that the two applications sent by Ortiz de Zevallos Olaechea, as well as the offices of former congressmen who claim that the election procedure “is not finished” will be submitted for consideration by the Plenary, made up of the seven magistrates of the TC.
A third topic announced by the president of the TC was the habeas corpus that demands the freedom of Keiko Fujimori. According to information from Congress, Blume will deliver its draft ruling tomorrow, but the case will be dealt with in the next two weeks.
On this issue, he acknowledged that this work took a long time to be “an extremely extensive file” of more than 900 pages.
