A strategy now is to leave out professionals in the field of public security. THE proposal dropped by just three votes last week. O congressperson Carlos Sampaio (PSDB-SP) criticized the measure. “And agglutinative amendment under the electoral code can only now refer to topics that have not yet been voted on, the new highlights. But none of the new highlights make reference to the quarantine theme. How can you add two or more highlights that do not refer to quarantine to return to an issue already overcome by this House of Laws? Mr. President, the quarantine fell because the deputies understood that there was a need for a more in-depth debate on the subject”, said Sampaio. The expectation is that the Chamber will vote on the new electoral code this Wednesday, 15, Po complete the vote, deputies must vote on the highlights presented by the parties. O The basic text was approved last week, by 378 votes to 80.
