Minister Vallejo optimistic about a new extension of the State of Exception: she hopes to have the votes of “our coalitions”

For this Friday, the Chamber of Deputies and Deputies and the Senate are scheduled to discuss a new extension of the State of Exception in the Region of La Araucanía and the provinces of Arauco and Biobío, in the region of the same name.

It will be the fourth time that the Government of President Gabriel Boric has asked Congress to extend this measure, after the last one, on July 13, when the Senate approved it by 36 votes in favor and 2 abstentions given by Senators Francisco Huenchumilla (DC) and José Miguel Durana (UDI).

That same day, hours before, the Lower House had approved it by 119 votes in favor, 8 against and 8 abstentions, with parliamentarians María Candelaria Acevedo, Lorena Pizarro and Matías Ramírez (the three independent-PC) voting against; Emilia Nuyado, from the Socialist Party (PS); Ericka Ñanco, Clara Sagardia, from the Broad Front committee; in addition to the legislators Félix González (PEV) and Pamela Jiles (PH).

For this reason, the Executive is working this week to align its coalitions, considering that they come from a failure in the process of the substitute veto of the Critical Infrastructure Law that was going to allow, among other things, that the Armed Forces protect routes, without the need to request a new State of Exception.

The problem is that this is district week and the parliamentarians are not in Congress.

The government spokesperson minister, Camila Vallejo, was consulted on this, who was optimistic about aligning the official hosts.

“At the moment we do not have major concerns, we hope to have the votes that we have counted from our coalitions, and perhaps we have a concern rather from the opposition, which has been very critical about the extensions, we also hope to have the support of the opposition”, replied the Secretary of State.

For this Friday, the Chamber of Deputies is scheduled to see the fourth extension in a special session, and if it is approved, the Senate will see it in the afternoon, also in a special session, because the term expires.
