From the Chamber of Deputies they maintained that “an observation can be added to the minutes for auditing, but not modify the direction of the vote“. In this sense, under the minutes, the aggregate will be recorded in observations, but there will be no modification of the vote.
German Martinez, the head of the Unión por la Patria bloc, published on his social networks that the libertarian’s request “is incorrect” and stressed that “you cannot change the direction of voting for a law, no matter how many notes you send to the Presidency of the body”. He ended by stating that “It is important to: 1) go to the sessions; 2) know what is being voted; 3) be attentive when voting“.
Despite having tried to change the course of her position, Milei confirmed that she was “in disagreement with regard to the treatment and accelerated approval in a ‘package’ mode of different files” within the Chamber and “waits for it to be considered.” (NA)
