From questioning the alliance for the future of the process, until we connect part of Chile. Let’s go left were the calls of the Republicans to the city councilors, who rejected one of the main changes that José Antonio Kast’s party wanted to impose in the new constitution.

Consultant Ivonne Mangelsdorff (RN) expressed this and assured to be ashamed” his bank, which, in his opinion, “signs with his hand and erases with his elbow.”
But who was the page aimed at? Germán Becker, Edmundo Eluchans, Lorena Gallardo and Gloria Hutt were the city councilors who voted against it.
For his part, Eluchans (UDI) stated: “I am a defender of life, I am not someone who wants to promote or deepen abortion.” But it seems to me that it was impertinent to include this provision in the first paragraph of the Constitution“.
Meanwhile, Germán Becker said that in his opinion these types of issues are more “values-based,” so personal options should take precedence over those of the bank.
Republicans are growing dissatisfied

Paul Sfeir, Republican Party consultant, stated: “There is nothing strange about Chile Vamos” Prioritize politics over common sense“.
“It is not surprising that they prefer “doing business” with the left. Denying that “every person is a person” opens the door to every possible violation of rights. “They started strangling their own bus,” Sfeir accused via his X account.
Meanwhile, Jorge Barrera, head of the Republican consultants and one of the most influential people in the council, explained this in an interview with La Tercera Trusts become corrupted.
He also called on the local councilors in this sector to provide appropriate justifications for rejecting the proposed amendment originally decided in the committee with the support of all right-wing parties.
