The Congress of the Republic rejected this Thursday by a majority to question the president of the Council of Ministers again, Hannibal Torreswhich would have been his second presentation in a month before the national representation.
The legislative initiative obtained 20 votes in favor, 46 against and 38 abstentions, for which it was sent to the archive.
The motion on the order of the day proposed summoning the prime minister before the Plenary to explain the extension of the state of emergency for another 30 days, from April 1 of this year.
The document specifies that the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (PCM) would not have carried out a “analysis of temporality, reasonableness, proportionality and necessity” of the measure nor of the “restrictive measures to fundamental rights”.
It is also read in the letter that the PCM has not responded so far to a request from Congressman Jorge Montoya, spokesman for Renovación Popular, regarding the minutes of the Council of Ministers from March 1 to 5.
It should be noted that the interpellatory statement consisted of ten questions. Weeks ago, Torres Vásquez responded to the national representation for the decision to order total social immobilization on April 5. On that occasion there were incidents in the plenary.
