The way to cast the vote is an insurmountable barrier. Without an agreement on the form of election, the renewal of the director in the Cruceña Parliamentary Brigade. The current president, Richard Rivera, indicated that the parliamentarians do not want the election to be filmed and has the presence of the press. The call is scheduled for this Monday, May 20 at 9:00.

Rivera, in contact with EL DEBER, pointed out that The proposal of his colleagues is that the vote be secret and not nominal, Much worse, that the vote is filmed and with the presence of journalists.

“If I say (in the call) that the vote will be secret, tomorrow (this Monday) everyone will be. That is the problem, why they do not want to attend,” said the deputy. For a quorum to exist, there must be 33 legislators. On April 15, only 18 parliamentarians were present, so it was suspended for the third time.

Rivera argues that the secret vote will allow legislators not to be identified with two of the candidates with the greatest chance, such as Paola Fernández and Laura Rojas without diminishing the support that Verónica Aguilera, who is also a candidate, may have.

The senator Paola Fernández, daughter of the mayor of the Santa Cruz capital Jhonny Fernández, she is a potential presidential candidate; However, the parliamentarians who support her will be identified with the Mayor’s Office, while those who vote for Representative Laura Rojas will be identified as followers of the current governor, Mario Aguilera.

“It cannot be that archism has divided two large institutions in Santa Cruz”Rivera stated. Asked about the future of the Brigade, he said that he will continue in office until the new board is elected because “I will never hand over the institution to the MAS.”

MAS bench will not attend

Deisy Choque, Patricio Mendoza and Rolando Cuéllar announced that they will not attend to the session this Monday, May 20. Choque did not give any explanation for his early absence and Mendoza said that he did not know about the call.

For its part, Rolando Cuellar, on their social networks, He indicated that they will not be there because the Creo bench has three candidates, in reference to Fernández, Rojas and Aguilera, the same ones who officially came to parliament thanks to the Creo alliance.

The Brigade is made up of 8 senators (including members and substitutes), 56 deputies (also including substitutes) and 2 supranational representatives.. However, these last two do not cast their vote for the election of the board.

With this panorama, the future of the Cruceña Parliamentary Brigade is in limbo and without a budget, since last December 31, so this Monday it is not ruled out that it will be the fourth time that the election of the board of directors will not be carried out due to lack of quorum.
