Earlier this week Together for Change boycotted treatment in the Chamber of Deputies from Front Labeling Law of Food by not giving the sufficient quorum so that it meets. After many twists and turns where the ruling party and the opposition want to deal with the Law but in different ways, everything would indicate that next week will be the time for a full session to approve it or not in the lower house.
«They are trying to agree a session for Wednesday or Thursday, and if not for the following week«, They revealed to NA Agency Parliamentary sources of Together for Change. This session is important since the bill is close to losing parliamentary status and needs to obtain final approval before November 30. That is why from the Frente de Todos they will have to “negotiate” or give their arm to twist with the requests of Juntos.
One of these negotiations could be to include in the session the discussion on the Sheep Law, which does not have an opinion but there would not be too much conflict in quickly putting the corresponding commissions into operation to get an express dispatch. “From the ruling party they are going to look for those who already have an opinion,” acknowledged the sources consulted from the opposition.
The other initiatives requested by the opposition, such as the repeal of the rent law, the educational emergency and the creation of the single ballot system, are not in the government’s folder, at least for this special session. Sergio Massa, president of the Chamber, will try to persuade Juntos por el Cambio to ensure a quorum and give greater legitimacy to the call to session, reaching at least 129 legislators.
In addition to convincing opponents, Massa and Máximo Kirchner, president of the Frente de Todos block in deputies, will have to make an effort so that next time, unlike last Tuesday, all the pro-government deputies attend. In the failed session there were five deputies from the Frente de Todos who did not attend, four of them without giving further explanations.
