The former member of the Constitutional Convention and now a supporter of the Rejection of the new Constitution, Felipe Harboe (independent-ex-PPD), launched himself against the text of the new Magna Carta that will be plebiscite with a mandatory vote on September 4.
“It would have been much easier, politically, humanly, to say let’s go for the Approval because there is the progressive world to which we belong, the center-left world, but what happens is that this text is imprisoned by a far-left group and that is a problem and that it is based on the fact that the 30 years ago was a disaster and I do not believe that, I believe that there is a sector that was also complicit in reviling the 30 years and others that silenced the defense”, said the ex-conventional in conversation with Channel 13.
In Harboe’s opinion, for whom it is “a text that does not guarantee governability”, the proposal made by the Convention “is not suitable for this country, neither at this time nor in the future, it is a draft Constitution that has a lot identity character, generates differences that are important to recognize us as different, but not necessarily establish differentiated rights”.
The ex-conventional stressed that if the Rejection wins, “what should happen is that that same night President Boric should immediately call for a new constituent process.” In Felipe Harboe’s opinion, “President Gabriel Boric has the possibility of convening a new process so that by the end of the government someone will say the ‘Boric Constitution’.”
Harboe also alluded to the ruling party agreement that was generated this week and pointed out that “this agreement made by the ruling party itself recognizes that the text is quite bad in what they propose without considering other elements, personal insults begin, politics, they are going to the human (…) The disqualification is the first symptom of the lack of arguments, I invite you to discuss the text”.
