The session began on Saturday, in which 32 assembly members spoke for more than seven hours, it continued on Sunday when 40 other parliamentarians requested to speak, and concluded with the statements by 71 in almost eight hours.

On both occasions, the parliamentarians presented their points of view about the request boosted by the Union for Hope Alliance (UNES) for serious social commotion in the framework of the national popular strike, which now reach its 16th day.

The UNES request, supported by 37 members of this political group, invokes article 51, of the Organic Law of the Legislative Function, and article 130, numeral 2 of the Constitution, which establish the cases in which the Legislature may remove the head of State.

The criteria presented included agreements on the need to respect the right to peaceful social protest.

Today’s discussion also takes into account the speeches at Parliament by Interior Minister Patricio Carrillo and National Defense Minister Luis Lara, referred to the Commission of Constitutional Guarantees, Human Rights, Collective Rights and Interculturality.
