Chilean politician advocates for unity to promote constituent process

Santiago, Chile, Oct 4 (Prensa Latina) Francisco Caamaño, former member of the Chilean Constitutional Convention, on Tuesday stressed the importance of the unity of the progressive forces to achieve a Constitution proposal in accordance with the citizens' interests.

In statements to Prensa Latina, Caamaño referred to the negotiations that take place in the National Congress among the different political parties with parliamentary representation to draw up an agenda towards a new text.

“I believe that the most important thing in this process is to join forces of a center-left bloc to face the right and the extreme right,” the politician said after participating at a meeting in Melipilla commune with representation of the Communist, Socialist, Radical, Christian Democracy, Broad Front and Independent parties.

Caamaño was a member of the joint Convention that ended on July 4 with the drawing up of a bill, which was rejected during the September 4 referendum.

Regarding the causes of this result, he indicated that sectors of the oligarchy opposed to the text started an early campaign for the rejection and tried to discredit the image of the Convention.

For the former member of the Convention, carrying out a work for dialogue and education in the neighborhoods, neighbors’ councils and social organizations is necessary to promote the constituent process.
