The Chamber of Deputies began this Tuesday the debate in committee of the projects to establish the single paper ballot, after the summons made last week by the plenary session of the body. In addition, it was agreed to hold at least two face-to-face briefings starting next Tuesday, before advancing with the opinion.
In the first place, the single ballot debate -which does not have the endorsement of the ruling party- was marked by the discussion about the modality of the informative meetings. The Frente de Todos promoted the need for face-to-face attendance on such a relevant issue, while the opposition proposed that these meetings be held virtually to allow for the largest number of exhibitors.
In the scheme proposed by Together for Change, meetings are planned for Tuesday, May 17 and 24, prior to the holidays on Wednesday, May 18 and 25, to finally seek an opinion on Wednesday, May 31, as a preliminary step to the aspiration of bringing the issue to the venue in the first fortnight of June, although that scheme could have some modification.
Only 16 countries support our voting system. With the #SinglePaperBoleta the qualitative leap is that the State prints and distributes the ballot. There is one ballot per voter.
You have to dare to change. The ruling party must stop clinging to the status quo and the trap. pic.twitter.com/Pkqobyty9t

💬| @marioraulnegri: “You have to enter the debate, a decision to change and not stay in the status quo, which is what is being discussed here. To cling to the status quo is to stay in the past.”
