What is the CRT and what is it for?
This trial was established in favor of the political parties in order to contest the constitutionality, legality, and validity of an act, omission, or electoral resolution by the states’ authorities in order that they may comply with the constitutional norms and principles.
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 which may impact elections to local deputy offices and municipal authorities. The SC is the competent authority to investigate acts and rulings which may impact governor elections.
Which appeal may be lodged against a CRT 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.
