Editor's Comment: OK, Salas did the swearing in ceremony and now Moncada Luna is the new President of the Supreme Court. But where the hell did he come up with that thing about how Supreme Court justices will serve ten years, and then if they do a good job then they will have another ten years? What, he thinks he can change the constitution with a speech? No mention made in the article that Moncada Luna was simply making a suggestion or anything like that. No matter - all Supreme Court justices, including him, serve ten years on the bench and then they are replaced. And does Moncada Luna really think any sitting president will give up the power to name new Supreme Court justices to sit on the bench? Am I missing something? Is this an issue that's being discussed as a possible change to the constitution?
