Shady Roux already taking shots at Cortizo.


The constitutional reforms that this Monday, October 28, would be approved in the third debate in the National Assembly continue to generate questions between different sectors of civil society.

    Reforms impose another limitation on independents
    Guilds reject goals to reform project
    This time, who refers to the issue is Romulo Roux , president of the Democratic Change (CD) party, and former presidential candidate of that political group in the elections of May 5.

For Roux, the debate on the reform project in the Assembly has been a “bumpy, moving forward and backward” process.
“The campaign promise to summon all sectors to seek consensus using the Concertación project as a base has not been fulfilled. That should never have been the final document,” said the politician, who also said that that was “a error”. “What starts badly ends badly,” he added.

Several articles that have been introduced in the bill that contemplates changes to the Constitution have generated rejection: that the deputies can increase or manage the general state budget without endorsement by the Cabinet Council; that a special superior prosecutor appointed by the deputies investigate the attorneys; that it is established that the marriage is between a man and a woman; and that the Assembly increase its powers such as the vote of censure that would force the president of the Republic to dismiss a minister and the appointment of the ombudsman attached, and a magistrate of the Court of Auditors.

Reforming the Magna Carta through two legislatures and then submitting the changes to a referendum is one of the campaign promises of President Laurentino Nito Cortizo , who assumed the reins of the country on July 1.
