Support and rejection of the election
When Omar De Marchi opened the session for the rest of the speakers to speak, there were adverse statements. In principle, the president of the Frente de Todos bloc, Germán Martínez, proposed Cecilia Moreau. «We come to propose it for 4 elements. First, because of her militancy trajectory; second, because of her strong commitment to the Frente de Todos; third because of her legislative trajectory; and fourth, for her remarkable human quality ”, were her arguments.
Graciela Camaño also supported and accompanied the official, especially for being the first woman to hold the position since the campus was founded. «We and our speeches are mere circumstantial details. You, Cecilia, are going to be in the history books as the first woman to preside over the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation and our country is going to be one of the few countries that has the Legislative Power in the hands of women. I want to tell you that I who had the honor of having shared the bench with Florentina Gómez Miranda in this Congress, do not have the slightest doubt that she is raising both hands for you », she stressed.
