"El Raonador del Ciutada" is the equivalent in Andorra of the Ombudsman, which is an institution independent from other and performs its duties with objectivity and a complete independence. The Ombudsman acts as delegate of the General Council.

Choice of the Name

In Andorra this institution has been connected to people who formerly acted on behalf of the people, defending systematically accused people in the area of criminal justice. They have been called "Raonador" (the reasoners - the arguers).

Thus, the designation of the "mediator" that has been considered timely and adequate in Andorra was "El Raonador del Ciutadà" (The Reasoner of the Citizen).
