The Minister (s) of the Interior, Manuel Monsalve, was obfuscated after the approval of an indication to the critical infrastructure project during its processing, in particular in the Citizen Security Commission of the Chamber of Deputies and Deputies.

This is an amendment introduced by deputies Andrés Longton (RN), Jorge Alessandri UDI) and Andrés Jouannet (Amarillos) that according to the undersecretary distorts the initiative by affecting the work that the Armed Forces can provide in border areas.

Specifically, it is a suppressive indication that removes the following text from the project: “The chiefs designated to command the forces will be responsible for the protection of public order in the determined areas established by the Ministry of the Interior in the supreme decree issued in accordance with the law.”.

Monsalve abruptly withdrew after the table gave the graft the green light and went to the office of the General Secretariat of the Presidency (Segpres), after which the session was suspended.

Subsequently, the undersecretary explained that “You have to think about the purpose that the Government is looking for, which, in addition, responds to a demand from the country, what the mayors, governors and Chileans who live in the northern zone have requested of us. What do they ask? That there be collaboration of the armed forces. in the protection of public order”.

“That is what was contained in the bill. What is it that the right presents as an indication and ends up approving it? An indication that eliminates the possibility that the Armed Forces. collaborate in tasks of public order in the border areas and obviously this completely loses the purpose of the bill “he added.

The authority asked that in the vote in the Chamber of the Lower House “this bill can be discussed and that it be the Chamber of Deputies that restores the power of the Armed Forces. to collaborate – I insist again – in tasks of public order in the border areas, which, we understand, is an emergency”.

He asserted that the project “was approved practically unanimously in the Senate. If tomorrow the faculty of the Armed Forces were to remain eliminated. to collaborate in public order tasks, it would have to go to the third stage in the Senate. If the Senate maintained its position and voted to replace that norm, it would go to a mixed commission.
