Confusion and a lack of detailed self-criticism have prevailed among the members of the Constituent Assembly who drafted the text a year (along with a right-wing minority).
Thus, figures that emerged during this period, such as lawyer Fernando Atria, pointed out that “this is not the happiest moment for me politically”, alleging right wing propaganda campaign, l best,Seller George Baradit said he would publish a book about the experience. Former President of the Convention and Representative of the Mapuche People, alyssa lonconWas honest: “It was a defeat based on individual and collective errors that postpone the recognition of the native peoples.”
In the political committee this morning, Boric tried to keep the two ruling coalitions quiet: I Approve Dignity (Broad Front and Communist Party) and Democratic Socialism (Socialist Party, Party for Democracy and Radical Party, among others). Witnesses to the meeting state that the parties will meet in private, without the president, to criticize his role in this failure.
all time Former President Michelle BacheletThe only former president to openly endorse “I Approve”, said in a television interview that “it is clear to many that this has been a consequence that we have to read carefully and all I want to say is that the President gave The statement given last night completely represents me”.
He referred to a speech given by Boric on Sunday night when the result was irreversible. “The people of Chile were not satisfied with the proposed constitution that the Convention presented to Chile and have therefore decided to categorically reject it in the elections,” he said.
“As President of the Republic, I accept this message with great humility and make it my own, and that the voice of the people must be heard not only on this day but also on everything that has happened in these past profound years. That we have lived. We must not forget why we came here, that malaise is still hidden and we cannot ignore it (…) I know they are insecurities, violence in the South We expect robust solutions in the face of rising costs of living, housing shortage, cost of living, lack of support for care, reactivation of our economy, perpetual waiting lists in health, quality of education and low pensions. These critical and urgent challenges Facing this new period with renewed vigor will require quick adjustments in our government teams. You can rest assured that the road to a new constitution will never be a hindrance to the exigencies that you have made for us. picked up”.
One of the first activities of the Chilean President this morning was to meet with the President of the Chamber of Deputies, Ral Soto (Party for Democracy) and the Senate, lvaro Elisalde (Socialist Party), to reorganize this new process. Both, representatives of the former Concertesians, the coalition that ruled for 30 years after the return to democracy and which were the target of criticism during the social outbreak of October 2019, for maintaining the neoliberal system properly established by the 1980 letter Magnum . ,
It is not surprising, therefore, that the support for the process, particularly “lukewarm”, was at peace with both politicians, especially with Elisalde and her party. It makes sense: The new text proposed the end of the Senate, a space that has been the coronation of old politicians, and with an eight-year extension. “We are in a moment of great political and social fragility and it is everyone’s duty to rise to the occasion and assume the political responsibility to lead this historic moment that we are living in,” said Soto, who adds that Stability will be achieved soon. Which avoids any other kind of crisis in Chile.”
really: The constituent process was the political solution, a month after the “outbreak” led to a crisis by Boric himself, when a million people had already marched into Santiago alone and police were shooting in the eye, which was reluctantly acknowledged by then-President Sebastian Pinera. . Then, there would be an exit referendum where about 80% of Chileans voted for a change of the constitution. No one has a clear answer for this yet. In fact, Elisalde focused on pointing out what was to come: “The President of the Republic is going to convene various parties with parliamentary representation, also civil society actors, to have their say,” Elisalde said. Said further.
Thus, Borik plans to meet this entire week and define a new process, although there were right-wing enthusiasts who spent all these months arguing that a new “and good constitution” is needed, only to renew the national See you tomorrow. Try to speed up the process. The Independent Democratic Union has chosen to wait a bit.
It is only certain at this time that Cabinet change will happen in the middle of this week And the departure of two central figures was rumored by him: Giorgio Jackson, minister of Segpress (the link between Congress and the executive) and Izkiah Siches, minister of the interior. Both did not live up to the expectations but played a key role in the government’s victory, first as a friend from the start of the 2010 university movement, as a deputy and second as the president of the medical college who emerged as an unlikely leader and The second phase of the campaign was crucial. A decision that will do a lot of damage to a government that is redefining its story by missing a transformative pillar of the Constitution.
