"The very fact that the referendum issue is brought forward
seems to express a judgment of substantial inadequacy of the reform system set up by the Government
; and implies the desire to call the people to an evaluation of the satisfaction of the judiciary, as if to formalize and crystallize the results of the various opinion polls that show the appreciation of the judiciary in decline ". "
I think it is up to the ANM to have a firm reaction to this type of method
". The president of the ANM Giuseppe Santalucia said about the referendums on justice, speaking to the Central Steering Committee of the Anm.
The referendum program can become "the formidable tool to overshadow a method of approach, made up of a commitment to distinguish, to select the type and structure of reform interventions, to test the relationship of constitutional compatibility and not cancel, in the name of 'idea that the system is not redeemable, a set of rules built around some principles that should not change- warned Santalucia- There is a risk of the propensity to evaluate in terms of inadequate shyness, if not unacceptable lepardism, the attitude reformer who does not show the muscles of ideologizing radicalism, who does not make himself perceived as willing to tear down old fences, which then more often than not are principals of direct constitutional connection ".Hence the conviction that the Anm must react: because "even before the contents, there is a question of the framework within which to place the reform action, and, as our Statute states, it is the task of the Anm 'to work so that the character, functions and prerogatives of the judiciary, with respect to the other powers of the State, are defined and guaranteed according to the constitutional norms' ".
The secretary of the association, Casciaro, insisted on the need for competitions, to avoid "staff gaps of as many as 2,000 ordinary magistrates in the merit offices in the next two years", which would make "the objectives set in the Recovery fund unrealistic, especially with reference to the speeding up of civil processes ".
