Chilean right wing blamed for delaying constituent process


Chilean right wing blamed for delaying constituent process

Santiago, Chile, Oct 21 (Prensa Latina) Chilean legislators accused the right-wing opposition of delaying the process underway in Congress to advance toward a new Constitution to replace the one in force since the dictatorship era (1973-1990).

The government coalition party and the Christian Democratic party presented a proposal that calls for a 100 percent elected constituent convention of 134 representatives, with reserved seats, participation of independents, and a six-month term of operation.

However, there has been no response from the right-wing alliance Chile Vamos (Let’s Go Chile) on the democratic body, parity, and participation of indigenous peoples, Social Convergence legislator Diego Ibáñez said.

Ibañez denounced that as long as the right wing does not agree, unfortunately, this table has no chance to move forward.

The stalemate in the negotiations led to suspending two meetings scheduled for this week between the parties represented in Parliament and rescheduling them for Monday.

The government coalition and the Christian Democracy insisted on the need to reach an agreement this month and not to continue delaying an issue that generates more uncertainty for the people and the economy.
