The next president of the CGPJ and the Supreme Court is a prosecutor's career and you will recognize a large category of legal. Despite being attached to the block conservative, his first position of importance was obtained from the hand of his countryman Eligio Hernandez, who, as attorney general of the State with a socialist Government named him number two of its Technical Secretariat. With the conservative Jesus Cardinal to the front of the office of the Prosecutor went up a step more, to be the head of that body of advice. He left the post with the arrival of Cándido Conde-Pumpido, who has always been faced.
