Let us remember that the senator, together with other independent parliamentarians, from the DC, Amarillos por Chile, the Partido de la Gente (PDG), and the Republican Party, announced the formation of a parallel table (which is led by the president of the Chamber of Deputies and Deputies and of the Senate, Raul Soto (PPD) and Alvaro Elizalde (PS)) on the constituent process.
On Wednesday, Castro confirmed the attendance of Pancho Malo -who was convicted of murder in 2000- at the parallel table, indicating that he did not know of his “profile.” Indeed, the leader of Team Patriota arrived this Thursday at the former National Congress, where the two tables are held for the constituent process.
The arrival of Francisco Muñoz generated criticism from different political sectors, considering that together with his group he has held funas against various political figures -including from Chile Vamos, as the president of the UDI, Javier Macaya– for continuing with the constituent process.
“It does not worry me”
“It does not worry me”. That was the reaction of Senator Castro when he was consulted about the request made by the leaders of the RN political commission.
“I am not concerned about what a political commission is saying, if that political commission has never invited us senators to a meeting to talk, to talk about politics, to talk about what we want as a country for the future,” he told CNNChile.
“So, I’m not worried about what they think, if I have to leave tomorrow I’m leaving, I have no problem,” he added.
