The entrance Mayor of Florencio Sánchez may resume when he completes his sentence after a decision by the Senate. was first published in The Digital Echo.
The government coalition resolved in a Senate commission to file the case of the mayor of Florencio Sánchez, Alfredo Sánchez.
Thus, by not having removal from the Senate, Sánchez will be able to resume his position as mayor once he completes his sentence.
Thus, the government coalition “saves” Sánchez from the dismissal requested by eleven mayors of the Colonia Departmental Board.
This was published in a Twitter thread by the senator from the Front Amplio, Enrique Rubio. The Colonial deputy Nicolás Viera also showed his indignation.
Senator Rubio’s thread:
1. Salvataje incomprehensible: the Coalition resolved in Commission of Sen. archive the case of the Mayor “of the thousand gauchadas” of F. Sánchez, who was sentenced by the Judicial P. to 3 years in prison and 2 years of disqualification from holding public office for serious crimes
2. They are serious because, together with 8 people, he is convicted of criminal association, fraud, extortion and other crimes. For this reason, 11 mayors of the Junta D. de Colonia appealed to the Senate to dismiss, among others, the Mayor. The Coalition decided to request that the case be archived
3. It means that after 2 years the Mayor resumes, even without completing the sentence. This decision violates public ethics. They argue that Article 18 of Law 19272, which extends the power of S to the municipalities, is unconstitutional. But the law is in force.
4. In any case, if the Mayor is removed from office for 2/3 of S, then he can appeal to the SCJ. But the Senate must take charge and not file. The message is bad. Let’s hope that the plenary session of the Chamber will rectify by taking charge.
The deputy for the Broad Front of Colonia Nicolás Viera added his comment on social networks after the publication of Senator Enrique Rubio. As “Unfortunate” the legislator described the news “Florencio Sánchez’s politics and society do not deserve it” Viera wrote “I cannot believe that the political actors of the department of Colonia can agree with such a decision! Hopefully they will reconsider and this decision will be reversed in the plenary session of the Chamber of Senators,” he remarked.
