All 155 members of the Convention who will draw up the new Constitution could not meet on any of those days because in the former National Congress, where they must meet, the minimum conditions had not been created and there were not even microphones, computers and telephones.
For this reason, the Communist Party (PC) bench announced that it will evaluate filing a constitutional accusation against Juan Jose Ossa, minister of the General Secretariat of the Presidency (Segpres) and President Sebastian Piñera himself.
In this regard, communist lawmaker Camila Vallejo considered ‘shameful’ the actions by the Government and the Executive ‘with the inability to have the health, technical and technological feasibility to hold the first session.’
She added that this situation implies political responsibilities that fall on the President and the Segpres, and the least that can be done is to evaluate and work on a possible constitutional accusation.
The lawmaker from the Social Green Regional Federation (FRVS), Alejandra Sepulveda, called on the Minister of the Segpres to resign ‘out of dignity.’
‘Faced with one of the most important processes we have in the country, he should present his resignation now, without any further explanation,’ Sepulveda told cooperativa.cl.
