"We continue to talk with different groups to achieve the necessary consensus for the election of the new authorities of the Attorney General's Office," Redondo said, explaining that the session was suspended to have time to achieve "agreements" in a parliament in which the ruling Freedom and Refoundation Party does not have a majority.
The Attorney General and Assistant Attorney must be elected by a vote of at least 86 out of 128 legislators in order to assume their five-year terms on September 1.
The election of the authorities of the Attorney General's Office is being closely monitored by social organizations, which have called for transparency to generate trust among citizens.
