Constitutional Court candidates get low grades
Posted On 26 Sep 2012
Yesterday at the Eugenio Espejo Convention Center, 19 of the 24 candidates aspiring to be judges of the Constitutional Court, gave a written test to qualify their knowledge on the subject.
The test is scored out of 100 points: 30 points (resume), 35 points (written knowledge test) and 35 points (oral examination).
The current President of the Constitutional Court, Patricio Pazmiño, got poor grades despite his long judicial career, reaching a note of 28/35 which, compared to a school range, is equivalent to 14/20.
No candidate reached the maximun grade despite the test being basic. On Friday, the oral exams, which consist of exposing a constitutional case, will begin. (MZ)
