This was key because with this, they were looking for an alternative to the State of Emergency in the southern part of the country.

Once this project fell, the Executive had no choice but to announce that it will once again request an extension of this measure. The problem is that he has to convince his parliamentarians to support him in Congress, especially the ruling party, such as Matías Ramírez (PC), Lorena Pizarro (PC) and Ana María Gazmuri (Humanist Action) who rejected the substitute veto. In addition to them, in the third extension of the State of Exception, other pro-government parliamentarians asked that it be the last.
