GANA candidate in suspense for promoting Bukele’s presidential re-election

If the aforementioned conduct is proven and the Chamber rules against Díaz de Martínez and he has already been elected, he will have to leave the position and assume a substitute.

Nancy Marichel Díaz de Martínez runs the risk of losing the deputation, if she is elected on Sunday, but the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court decides to disqualify her from her citizenship rights for promoting presidential re-election.

The Chamber yesterday admitted a lawsuit against Díaz de Martínez and opened a process for having incurred in one of the causes indicated in the Constitution in its article 75: “They lose the rights of citizens: 4th. Those who sign acts, proclamations or adhesions to promote or support the reelection or continuation of the President of the Republic, or use direct means aimed at that end ”.

If the aforementioned conduct is proven and the Chamber rules against Díaz de Martínez and he has already been elected, he will have to leave the position and assume a substitute.

The Chamber states it bluntly: “It should be noted that the electoral result of the participation of citizen Nancy Marichel Díaz de Martínez as a candidate for deputy for the GANA party for the territorial district of San Salvador will be conditioned on the ruling issued in this process of loss of citizenship rights ”.

“If the existence of the alleged constitutional violation is verified and an estimate is issued regarding the loss of her political rights, the citizen Nancy Marichel Díaz Martínez, in the case of being elected, will not be able to assume the position of deputy and would assume, in such a case, an alternate from his parliamentary group ”.

Díaz de Martínez has a period of 20 business days, after being notified, to answer the claim for loss of citizenship rights filed against him, which was filed by the lawyer Enrique Anaya.

The Chamber orders that the Supreme Electoral Tribunal be informed.

Anaya filed the lawsuit, noting that the candidate recently stated in an interview with the newspaper El Mundo that it is necessary “that the re-election of the president be resumed,” then she stated that “we need President Bukele to be able to stay longer (…)”, adding that “We want him to be re-elected, because we know that in five years he will not finish all his works.”

Given this, the lawyer Anaya recalls in his lawsuit that the Constitution has provided as an assumption of loss of citizenship rights in its article for “attacking one of the fundamental pillars of the Salvadoran political, democratic and constitutional system, such as the alternation in the exercise of the presidency of the Republic, which constitutes one of the stony clauses of the constitutional regulations ”.

Therefore, it requests that the loss of the candidate’s citizenship rights be declared, especially her right to active and passive suffrage.
