“If political parties and parliamentary groups are in favor of a Superior Council of the Judiciary formed on the basis of new and different criteria, it is necessary that they prepare and approve a law that provides for it in Parliament: this task is not entrusted by the Constitution to the President of the Republic but to the Government and Parliament “. This is stated in a note from the Quirinale on the CSM. “However superfluous it should be clarified that the President of the Republic moves – and must move – within the scope of the tasks and according to the rules established by the Constitution and by the law e cannot dissolve the Superior Council of the Judiciary on the basis of its own discretionary evaluation “. This is what the presidency of the Republic remembers.

“If political parties and parliamentary groups are in favor of a Superior Council of the Judiciary formed on the basis of new and different criteria, it is necessary that they prepare and approve a law in Parliament that provides for it: this task is not entrusted by the Constitution to the President of the Republic but to the Government and Parliament “, explains a note from the Quirinale

“As regards the request that the President express himself on the content of statements made by individual magistrates against political representatives – the note affirms – it should be remembered that, however serious and unacceptable they may be considered, criminal proceedings are underway on the whole matter and disciplinary proceedings e any assessment by the President could be instrumentally interpreted as pressure from the Quirinale on who is called to judge in criminal or disciplinary proceedings “.

It is hardly necessary to remember that a possible dissolution of the Superior Council of the Judiciary would entail a slowdown, from unpredictable times, of the disciplinary proceedings in progress against the magistrates accused of the behavior disclosed, putting the timely conclusion at risk in the terms provided by law “.
