Bonissi Says He Has The Experience To Be A Judge on the Electoral Tribunal

Giuseppe Bonissi - Former Attorney General
The former Attorney General Giuseppe Bonissi told the local media on Wednesday 1 August 2012 he has the necessary experience to qualify for the post of judge of the Electoral Tribunal (TE), as he presented the documentation to aspire to the position. Before entering the office of the Secretary General of the Supreme Court, Bonissi said on the morning news he has not been "anointed" by President Ricardo Martinelli. He said there is no photo evidence showing he has appeared with the president. Bonissi said the time for the electoral reforms has been lost, unless there is a general consensus on the issue. He added "because we are in the heat of an election, the electoral reforms are not convenient." The president judge of the Electoral Tribunal Gerardo Solis leaves office during November 2012.

Editor's Comment: The Electoral Tribunal is set up with three judges. One judge is appointed by each of the three branches of government. The position filled by Gerardo Solis is filled by the Supreme Court, so they will name his replacement. Bonissi was forced to resign from his position as the Attorney General over a scandal in which a group of accused drug traffickers were mysteriously released and allowed to escape the country, and prosecution. And how he's the "anointed one" for the position on the Electoral Tribunal? That might just be wishful thinking on his part, or there might be something to it. Martinelli named Bonissi to the position of Attorney General after the pried Ana Matilde Gomez out of the job. He lasted about a year. And tell me, doesn't he look perfect for a role on "The Sopranos"? ...fugidaboudit...
