Judges strike throws spanner in works of municipal elections

With smiling faces of candidates for October’s municipal elections plastered across roadside hoardings, the truth is the changeover could be messy, thanks to a two-day walkout by the nation’s judges, starting on October 3.

Explains Público, the strike will “delay the validation of the results” though it won’t put them “at risk”.

Judges say they are protesting against what they call the government’s “intransigence” over “professional progressions adequate to the dignity of their functions”.
