“Uruguay had a migrant son to fight for his country”: Montevideo permanent representative to the OAS

The democracies of Latin America, like most liberal democracies in the world, are experiencing a period of worrying political polarization. This growing phenomenon emerges in many countries with great social inequalities and close electoral processes.

Polarization has effects that go beyond deep differences between politicians or parties: polarization deepens the breakdown of public debate that closes political actors and makes it difficult to reach consensus and decisions that benefit society as a whole.

In addition, polarization can also weaken democratic institutions and governance, risking eroding trust in democratic processes and institutions.

Among all the regions in the country, Uruguay tends to stand out exactly the opposite. And not that there are completely different ideas on how to handle issues or what the needs of the country should be measured, but its politicians in general – and already for years – maintain a surprisingly friendly climate that allows reaching consensus or, where this is not possible, the judgments of those who rule. What?

The article published now lists 10 reasons that try to explain why this small South American country has made an exception to remain in the middle of this global trend in the democracies of the world.

Washington Abdalá, the Uruguayan diplomat who represents his country today before the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS), discussed this matter at the Question of Power.

“Uruguay is a country where the ideas of education and secularism are always at the base (…) Uruguay has fought a little with adversities as a country that is the son of migrants, because the region is not always friendly enough; “Abdallah Washington explained.

Uruguay is also one of the countries in Latin America with less corruption in the region, the permanent view of Uruguay’s representative to the OAS shows that “Uruguayan society will forever follow what happens with power and what corrupts the phenomena, although somehow there is a field that is marked in a more intense way”.

The judgment in Uruguay is the Monstersquieu itself, the separation of power works. Like you, I can’t have the opinions of either the prosecutor or the judge, but the separation of powers works’ he added.
