Vacancies on the Central Military Tribunal in Spain

The failure of the government of Spain (PSOE and Unidas Podemos) and the political party, Partido Popular, to reach agreement has led to vacancies in the judicial branch.  Dozens of judicial posts are remaining vacant because of the failure of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) to make appointments to the bench.  At the end of June 2022, there were eight vacancies in military jurisdiction, which included the President of the Central Military Tribunal in Madrid.  The interim President, General Francisco Luis Pascual Sarría, had to sign a government agreement about "the substitutions in the Military Tribunals" given the necessity of adopting an agreement due to the substitutions in the different military tribunals for 2022.  The situation of provisional judges is only going to be aggravated in the coming months since two other members of the Central Military Tribunal will be leaving shortly.  One member of the Tribunal will be leaving at the end of July and the second in October.  With these departures the only remaining member will be the provisional President of the Tribunal.
