Parlacen was born as a parliamentary body after the Federal Republic of Central America and Costa Rica as an observer. He was born from the Contadora Group, a project launched in the 1980s to deal with civil wars in El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Although the Contadora group was dissolved in 1986, the concept of Central American integration is implicitly mentioned in the constitutions of several countries. In particular, the Esquipulas peace agreement approved the creation of a Central American parliament composed of 20 to 22 deputies elected by direct universal suffrage of each country. Costa Rica has not ratified the agreement and is not represented in the Parlacen. Parlacen is considered by some (including former Honduran President Ricardo Maduro) to be a white elephant.  Article 12 of the Tegucigalpa Protocol called for the creation of a Central American court to “ensure respect for the law, interpretation and implementation of the protocol and the instruments or acts that flow from it.” Article 12 also stipulates that a statute of the Central American Court would govern the accession, rules of procedure and specific powers of the Court of Justice. In addition, Article 35 of the Tegucigalpa Protocol requires that the Central American Court of Justice not substitute any dispute with the Central American Court of Justice over the application or interpretation of the provisions of the protocol or any other bilateral or multilateral agreement, agreement and protocol relating to the economic integration of Central America by the Tegucigalpa Protocol. The historical precedent of the current U.S. Central Court of Justice is in a Central American court that was founded in 1907 and was the first international court in the world. The new agreement aims to promote sustainable development and deepen its process of regional integration. This closer economic integration between the countries of the Central American region is important to attract investment in the region and help local businesses develop the strength of their regional market in order to be internationally competitive. The Central American Court of Justice aims to promote peace in the region and unity between its Member States and has jurisdiction over the decision between Member States, between a Member State and a Non-Member State, which has jurisdiction over the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice, between states and any individual or legal person residing in a Member State with regard to the integration process between SICA institutions and Member States or individuals or legal entities.
