“According to Articles 192 of the Constitution and 4 of Law no. 183 (the Law), the Procurador shall be appointed for a three-year renewable term. However, the Constitution and the Law are silent on the number of times the Procurador can be reappointed, which leaves open the possibility of unlimited tenure.

In order to promote institutional independence, the SCA is of the view that it would be preferable for the term of office to be limited to one reappointment.

The SCA reiterates its previous recommendation encouraging the PDDH to advocate for amendments to the Constitution and the Law to provide for such limits on the term of office.”
