Capitanich warns against Supreme Court 'interference' in Executive power
During a press conference in the Government House, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich assured that the Government “has not received any formal request for an audience” by the Supreme Court magistrates, and warned of “interference in the executive.”
The Supreme Court's official website published earlier today a summons to chambers for the Chief of Staff, which would take place according to the judicial authority next Tuesday to talk about questions related to the government.
But speaking to reporters, the politician affirmed that he had not received a formal request for an audience, as well as pointing out that it was not within his remit to speak to the Supreme Court.
“The audience should be requested of the President, and not of the Cabinet Chief,” affirmed Capitanich.
In that sense, he stated that “we don’t have any problem discussing budget issues, which are regulated under the Constitution”, but emphasized that “no official request has been received.”
