Nothing totalitarian: Servel clarifies that the “Houses for Approval” initiative is legitimate

A series of questions provoked the national tour “2 million houses for the Approval”, promoted by the Approval command within the framework of the campaign for the exit plebiscite on September 4.

According to the deputy of the Communist Party and coordinator of the command, Karol Cariola, the measure consists of spreading out across Chile to “add new houses for the Approval.”

“We are going to leave them a little sign that says ‘this house is for approval’ in each of the windows,” Cariola told Channel 13.

The statement provoked various criticisms from the political world, especially from the right, which even went so far as to indicate that the action was “totalitarian”.

However, the president of the Electoral Service (Servel), Andrés Tagle, told Cooperative Radio that the initiative is legal, but that it must comply with the procedures indicated by the regulations.

“That is legitimate advertising that is in the law, but the consent must be written by the owner and must be informed by the command that does it to the Electoral Service, that makes it legitimate,” he said.

“In other words, the commandos can put up posters, so to speak, in private houses, but the law requires that condition, a written authorization from the owner in a form that is within the Servel and that it be sent to the Servel within a certain period of time by of the command that is doing it,” he said.
