SARS-CoV-2 makes the Chilean government to call for a national deal
Santiago de Chile (Prensa Latina) In the midst of a health crisis that is deepening Chile's economic and social problems, the political debate returns to the forefront after Sebastian Piñera called for a 'great national deal.'
On Monday, in a brief speech, the president urged to understanding among all the political sectors of the country and jointly working to face the serious situation in the country, based on fighting against and defeating the Covid-19 pandemic, protecting the jobs of hundreds of thousands of workers and revive the economy.
The call comes at a time when the advance of the pandemic in recent weeks has scuttled the government's healthcare and economic strategies, and is on the verge of collapsing the health system.
In addition to that situation is the insufficiency of the aid approved by the executive, evidenced in the growing social unrest caused by the loss of jobs for hundreds of thousands of workers and many families who are suffering from hunger, which seems to be getting closer and closer a new social outbreak of enormous proportions.
The president's proposal supported by the ruling parties was received by opposition forces with expressions ranging from approval to skepticism.
Meanwhile, according to reports, a meeting is scheduled for this Tuesday at the La Moneda presidential palace with representatives of the ruling parties to seek to shape up the known great national deal.
