This Wednesday, opposition deputies achieved a quorum to begin debating the Single Ballot project in the Lower House. The presence of 129 legislators was needed, and that was exactly the number they got.

Now, Deputies began the special session to advance with the reform of the electoral system, despite the fact that the ruling party rejects it.

The project seeks to establish a voting instrument that shows the entire electoral offer of a district on a single piece of paper. The vote would be exercised by marking the boxes corresponding to the electoral parties or fronts for each category (for example, deputies and senators of the Nation, and/or governor, legislators, mayor, councilors, in the case of provincial elections).

A long debate and a vote close to midnight are expected.
