This paper analyzes the discretionality existing in terms of administrative sanctions, realizing that the attribution of discretionary powers in the exercise of sanctioning powers is a deliberate and conscious determination of the legislator within the framework of the constitutional order. In this way, the existence of discretion in the exercise of sanctioning powers allows the Administration to direct its repressive activity in order to achieve the public purposes entrusted to it, considering the specific circumstances of the case, including its adaptation to certain policy public options.
