Praia, Mar 14 (Inforpress) – The judge Rosa Vicente considered, this Tuesday, that the functioning of the Constitutional Court (TC) with a minimum of three magistrates is “complicated” and that there must be a more rigorous filter in the admissibility of the support resource.
Rosa Vicente made these statements during the hearing of the Specialized Commission on Constitutional Affairs, Human Rights, Security and State Reform as a candidate for the position of first Alternate Judge of the Constitutional Court, within the scope of the election of bodies external to parliament.
According to her, the greatest difficulty of the TC, with regard to its operation, has to do with the fact that it has a minimum of three judges, stressing that, considering the fundamental matters there is a need for the body to work with more judges.
“The minimum is complicated, we’ve had situations where we had two votes against one so having a plenary with at least five for fundamental issues would be good”, she reinforced.
She assured that, taking into account the competences of the body, they should make a more rigorous filter in the admissibility of this type of appeal so that they can have time and availability for the truly main issues.
