Tarija: Diputada laments deputies from Community Citizen and MAS missing sessions
Recently, the Bolivian Congress has become the center of national news after deputy Violeta Salvatierra, from the Social and Ecologic Tarija, has publicly denounced the Comunidad Ciudadana and MAS political groups for not attending sessions.
The Bolivian Congress has been unable to begin a constitutional reform because of the lack of quorum and most notably due to the non-participation of some of the deputies. Diputada Salvatierra and other several members of the few oppositions of the executive, agreed with each other in conversations intended to find solutions to the problem.
Repercussions and responsibilities
Deputy Salvatierra has expressed «sorrow» for the attitude of the neglected groups: «I’m sorry for the voters that elected citizens of Community Citizen and MAS because they are being represented by persons who, without being new to this situation, face a behavior that disregards their duties.»
Call for action
The former Executive Periodic Secretary has proposed the following ideas in order to react to the situation:
- One Law for All: A new law should be created regarding the presence of deputies in the sessions.
- Dialogue and Resolution: Formal meetings between the whole political groups in order to reach consensus and find solutions.
- Citizen’s Voice: Encourage citizens to take an active role in the process and make their voices heard.
The Deputy’s words mark the beginning of a process to search and find solutions to a problem that affects the whole nation. It is still yet to be seen how the community and the political groups will rise up to meet the challenge.
