The member of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) Concepción Sáez, appointed at the proposal of Izquierda Unida, has submitted her resignation to the president of the institution Rafael Mozo.

According to legal sources, Sáez sent a letter to Mozo where he explained that the situation of the body seems "unsustainable" and that he wants to leave office in order to avoid further institutional degradation.

The member, who has been considered a loose verse in the Council since she was appointed in 2013, becomes the first member of the body to take the step of resigning from the position. The current CGPJ has had the mandate extended since December 2018.

His resignation must now be admitted by President Mozo who has already announced that in no case will he do so before the next plenary session scheduled for the end of the month.
