What is the APP and what is it for?
This trial was established in favor of the political parties and, in exceptional cases, to the citizenship in order to guarantee that the INE’s acts, omissions, and rulings comply with the constitutional and legal principles. The APP may be lodged regarding INE’s rulings imposing sanctions due to breaches in audits in order to contest them.
Who investigates and who resolves it?
Depending on the case, either one of the Regional Chambers of the TEPJF or the SC is the competent authority to investigate and resolve. There is a period of 4 days to lodge the appeal starting on the day of the acknowledgement of the act or resolution.
The Regional Chambers of the TEPJF are the competent authorities to investigate the acts and rulings issued by the decentralized INE organs. The SC is the competent authority to investigate acts and rulings issued by the centralized INE organs.
Which appeal may be lodged against an APP ruling?
As long as the special provenance requirements are met, the Regional Chambers of the TEPJF’s rulings may be lodged through a REA resolved by the SC in a final instance.
