Jaime Bellolio’s interpretation of indigenous consent in the new Constitution is denied in a television program

One of the articles of the new Constitution that has generated wide debate is article 191. In the middle of the “Debate Chile” program on Chilevisión, the leader of the UDI was denied when expressing his interpretation on this point, as it is manifest in the constitutional text in the title of the same article.

Sebastián Piñera’s former minister began to read verbatim point two of article 191, which says that “indigenous peoples and nations must be consulted and will grant free, prior and informed consent in those matters or matters that affect their rights recognized in this Constitution”, without mentioning the title that says “Right of participation in territorial entities”, an important aspect that is overlooked when interpreting the point.

After the article was shown with the title included, Bellolio stated that “this is the typical thing that the left has done in a very radical way, saying that all interpretation is fake. Let’s read it. ‘Matters or issues that affect their rights recognized in this Constitution.’ In which part does it say that it is only for this article, in which part does it say that it is only for the territorial. Why would someone assume that it is the ultra-left version of this. It just isn’t.”

While developing the explanation, the ex-conventional, Barbara Sepúlveda, insisted that the doubts raised by Bellolio were specified in the title.

Sepúlveda herself previously explained that this law is for “issues that affect the peoples in a territorial context, in a locality, in a specific town, so here we must not distort the message. The same, justice is not parallel, criminal matters are not applied, in criminal matters there is no custom and indigenous law is pure custom. In addition, it is about conflict resolution methods between indigenous people, it does not apply between Chileans either.”
