In the review session of the folders, the commission concluded that Cruz complied with the 18 requirements that are required of applicants to the Ombudsman’s Office and determined that the Conade leader failed to comply with one of the requirements.
The registry of applicants to the Ombudsman’s Office closed last Friday with 198 applications. The commission must complete the review on compliance with the requirements by April 9.
After the publication of the list of eligible and disqualified applicants in this stage, the division will receive the challenges. In this phase, disqualified applicants will have four days to present observations on the commission’s decisions.
In addition, the regulation of the process establishes that any individual and collective person may challenge the applicants with “foundation and attaching suitable evidence.”
