The appointment of two women to Panama’s Supreme Court announced on Wednesday marks the first time that the bench will have a female majority starting in  January.

 President Cortizo named Miriam Yadira Chen Rosas as magistrate of the First Civil Chamber, and María Cristina  Stanziola, magistrate of the Third Administrative and Labor.

Chen Rosas was appointed to replace Hernán De León, while Stanziola replaces Luis Ramón Fábrega, whose terms expireson December 31.

The appointments must be ratified by the National Assembly,

"For the first time in the history of the Republic, our Supreme Court of Justice has five women among its nine magistrates," said Cortizo.

The president also appointed Ariadne Maribel García as alternate judge of the First Civil Chamber, and Salvador Domínguez Barrios as alternate judge of the Third Administrative and Labor Litigation Chamber. In addition, it appointed Isis Omaris Joseph Garzón as an alternate magistrate for Magistrate Cecilio Cedalise, in the Third Chamber.

The president stressed that the selection process responded "to the need to have magistrates characterized by their independence, criteria, commitment, knowledge and character," as it was done in 2019 when he appointed three main magistrates and six alternate magistrates.“Once again I fulfill this responsibility, by filling the vacancies produced by virtue of the expiration of the constitutional period of two main magistrates and their respective alternates. One of them for the First Civil Chamber, and another for the Third Administrative and Labor Chamber ”, stated the president.

Panama: China Conquest with a Panama Canal Expansion - Diplomatic Sales Transfer. Diplomatic Sales Transfer as part of Panama's 26 Non - Transparent agreement. Let there be no mistake, China wants to conquer U.S. Supremacy. China wants to rule the global empire. First, China must take Taiwan the way it took Hong Kong. China complete control of Taiwan means China controls a major portion of global economy. China's control of Taiwan is a victory for its global markets and superior status. Panama developed diplomatic relations with China recognizing Taiwan as China's province. China recognizes Panama as Taiwan's sister because of the [Panama Canal Expansion]! China wants Panama Amador Causeway and $50 million restaurant - (Surveillance headquarter). China wants full fledge Panama born Chinese Supreme Court Judges for their legal favors. China recognizes Panama's weaknesses, the government's underground money laundry operations. When all these facts are added together a pattern of strategy develops for China. Panama government refuses transparency and the P.N.A. 71 deputies each want free vehicles. Vehicles to support their wealth scheme operations as vehicles are worth $25,000 - $50,000 even $100,000 or more! China knows P.N.A. has total control of the Panama Canal Expansion and will be able to relinquish the P.C.E. off their hands through predatory lending and forced concessions. United States and the International community have no jurisdiction over Panama's canal. Panama National Assembly are recklessly squandering Panama's canal revenues for their own personal dream and profits with family payrolls and personal secret business underground accounts. Panama has squashed any interest in a constitution reform and Comptroller General Transparency. Panama has squashed any interest in an election reform with a re-election plan for former president Martinelli. Martinelli will do anything for $BILLIONS FOR HIMSELF AND HIS PARTY! INCLUDING THE SALE OF THE SHARE OR COMPLETE SALE OF THE PANAMA CANAL EXPANSION! Either the Panama National Assembly control the Panama Canal Expansion for their own profits or... P.N.A. sell the P.C.E. for greater profits in the $10's BILLIONS! Panama government has numerous underground profit-based operations from each of the 71 deputies numerous ways to achieve varous resources for vast income. A very complicated underground network of debts and profits in just a few short years with the operation of the Panama Canal Expansion since 2016! No broken sentence, no bullets, no repetitions. JUST THE FACTS ON THE PANAMA - CHINA AGENDA!

Loss of share or complete control of the Panama Canal Expansion with China / Panama-Italian rivalry. Mysterious new version of Chinese Wuhan Covid - 19 afflicting Panama. Mysterious new excavated new breeding grounds of deadly mosquitos... verion of Zika! Sudden economic decline and starvation. Sudden new dictatorship to control he Chaos and government takeover. Possible U.S. / International intervention with aerial bombings. Panama president and Yanibel Abrego in hiding from the fierce scandal. Cortizo era of Panama mass burials all blamed on the United States!

Panama: Chen and Cheng... Part of Varela / China 26 Non-Transparent Agreement. Analytics of Facts: No bullets to torture the critics... RIP. China adapts a very common ploy as did former Panama president Martinelli. China also has a major bank in Panama. China sells surveillance equipment with U.S. technology to Panama. China wanted to build a $16 billion another set of canal locks with their own financing. China wanted a $50 million restaurant included with the Fourth Bridge contract project. What's next? Follow the pattern of facts. - China major bank buys Panama real estate and uses it for alleged criminal bail money. - China produces English translations for the Panama news. - China teaches Chinese language to Panamanians. - China educates Chinese born in Panama to be lawyers. What do we have? China / Panama 26 Non-Transparent agreement... checked! Female Supreme Court Judges... checked! China major bank... checked! China purchases of real estate for alleged underground crimes - bail money... checked! What are China's crimes in Panama for the future look like? Follow the pattern of facts. Panama president Cortizo wants more money. Abrego / Cortizo dirt excavation underground operation for sale of cow compost / fertilizer, etc. China supplies off the book secret accounts money to Cortizo / Abrego with a major China bank. Cortizo has mounting debt to predatory lending, now the concessions, control the shares of -Panama Canal Expansion. President Cortizo now owes China a favor and negotiates with China. A headquarter of prime real estate... Amador Causeway. A scandal breaks out. Supreme Court of Chinese Judges rules in favor of China and any negotiated instruments between Cortizo and Chinese diplomat officials. Nothing new, no broken sentences but, paragraphs unworkable. Panama National Assembly Italians battle for the greater share of Panama Canal Expansion. China has the upper hand with the Chinese Supreme Court Judges. Bloody mayhem and street fights. Panamanians lose out to a new mysterious version of Panama Covid - 19 and Chinese Kung fu! Well, that's all folks.
