During this day, a historic meeting was held between the President-elect, Gabriel Boricand the future senator for Antofagasta, Paulina Nunez. It is the first meeting -spread- between the future president and an opposition parliamentarian.
The appointment took place in Boric’s current home -Bellas Artes neighborhood, Santiago Centro- and had an emphasis on the migratory and security crisis that affects the north of the country.
The current deputy, when asked about the details of the meeting, clarified that it was not protocol and did not want to give details of it either. Although, she in her social networks wrote about the date.
“Today I met with the president-elect Gabriel Boric, for 8 years we shared in the Chamber, we built agreements and we also had differences that allowed us a direct and sincere dialogue,” the post began.
“In March, he from La Moneda and I from the Senate, together with a new generation, must take charge and respond to many social demands that still persist, that are historical and real. That requires getting together, talking and understanding that there are no owners of the truth, here I will always be available,” added Núñez.
“He received me at his house, very friendly and we had a good conversation. We talked about migration, security, and the postponement of our region of Antofagasta and the north of the country”, concluded the current deputy of National Renewal.
It should be noted that this is the first meeting between Boric and an opposition parliamentarian outside institutional channels.
On January 19, the future president received the helmsmen of the Chile Vamos parties (UDI, RN, Evópoli, and the PRI) who told him that they would act as a united opposition.
After that meeting, the president of RN, senator Francisco Chahuan, indicated that they will avoid the “pirquineo” in the votes in the parliament for the future government. Legislative practice that seeks to act as a conglomerate and not individually.
