Dismissal of judges was seen as a major victory for President Nayib Bukele, who was retweeted by Eduardo Bolsonaro on Sunday

A crisis between powers, with Parliament dismissing Supreme Court judges and the attorney general with support from the President of the Republic.

In this case, the president tried to impose strict lockdown measures against the coronavirus, but saw his attempts blocked by judges.

The episode took place in El Salvador this weekend, and had repercussions among Brazilian politicians.

On Saturday (01/05), the Legislative Assembly (the Parliament of El Salvador) approved by a large majority – 64 of the 84 deputies voted in favor – the dismissal of the five magistrates of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ). The members of this Chamber form one third of the CSJ.
