This was the message he left at the end of a televised public debate of more than one hour with Senator Guido Manini, also from Cabildo Abierto, who in his concluding two-minute turn, urged to keep such legislation intact, by casting the NO ballot in the March 27 consultation.

The antipodean legislators previously agreed to discuss the thematic axes Public Security, Housing, Education and Labor Relations.

To the defense by retired General Manini of the first content to prosecute crimes, the former unionist criticized the introduction of violent self-defense of properties, arrests and searches without warrant and police excesses denounced by public defenders.

Then they got into the lack of gradualness of sentences and the increase of homicides in prisons, raised by the pro-amplista front.

In charge of opening the housing issue, Andrade criticized the shortening of terms to evict tenants, both for a good or bad payer for arrears and the payment of 60 % more for this cause, to three days, in the midst of the pandemic and job losses that he described as “fierce against poorer families”.

On the other side, Manini put more emphasis on protecting landlords so that they can continue renting.

Education was initially addressed by the lobbyist who, while enumerating recognized deficiencies in the high school promotion process, blamed the sector’s union to justify the exclusion of teachers from the Board of Directors.

In the last block, the communist legislator lashed out against the regulation of the right to strike without prior dialogue as a “license” to break a legitimate instrument of the union movement, which “cannot be an obstacle to the development of society, but a condition”.
