Mexico Supreme Court independence may strengthen

Tuesday, January 31, 2023


As Supreme Court president, Pina also heads the Council of the Federal Judiciary (CJF), which is responsible for the management of the federal justice system, including the appointment, evaluation and sanctioning of judges. Her term will run until December 2026.

  • Increased reliance on the military will probably be addressed by the Supreme Court under Pina.
  • Impunity and corruption, which still permeates the judiciary, will pose long-term challenges for the CJF during Pina’s term.
