failure after the operation to enter the request to the Constitutional Court (TC) seeking to stop the promulgation of the law of gender identity, have girded for war at a fraction of the right made up much of the UDI and national renewal more conservative sector.
Following the approval of the project in mid-September, Mr Juan Antonio Coloma (UDI) and Miguel Mellado (RN) have been deployed all his connections to try to stop the law. RN inside the deployment “has been hard”, recognizes a member of Parliament, primarily by the pressure of the so-called “Evangelical caucus” that has been dropped to the interior of the community and who has resorted to every argument possible to convince to the more liberal members of the caucus support – initially the requirement that unsuccessful – the “be present” before TC.
The “Evangelical caucus”, led by the deputies Leonidas Romero, Eduardo Durán and Francesca Muñoz, is the most active in this true crusade against the gender identity law. From RN ensures that his insistence causes discomfort and have even taken more than any Welt to the inside of the right’s biggest party. That, because they had become accustomed to living with the internal differences and “rich diversity” that characterized the community, but the “belligerence” of this new group has stressed to an unnecessary level of internal coexistence and relations with the Government.
A logic of work that has divided the “cueca in peace that we had,” said one parliamentarian, despite evident tensions between the internal groups of the party. And that it has become, on several occasions, uphill driving of the helmsman of the party, Mario Desbordes.
In the quest to add more detractors to the application of the law, also added part of the Christian Caucus of RN, the so-called “socialcristianos”, those militants who are extremely conservative and Catholic in the so-called “moral area”, but that is they depart from the economic liberalism as a model. This sector has been historically identified with the Senator Manuel José Ossandón, but in the lower House are recognized to the eave of the Deputy Diego Schalper, who has supported the request to go to the Constitutional Court, before the requirement was dropped because of lack of signatures.
In this process of belief, since the Evangelical sector and Venezuelan have deployed a strategy meetings with different parliamentarians, as some DC, have made reports and made arguments that have come down to the trays of input of the mail of undecided Members. “We have had into the House and have claimed to the directors by the lack of support, as well as, as they are”, emphasizes a parliamentarian. But, apparently, from the more liberal sectors of RN the arm would not be to twist.
In the most conservative sectors “there is annoyance”, added in RN, since all its deployment and search to carry a project which became fundamental for the Government, while it was not originally in the program, the TC has gone from “failure after failure”.
The above, not only by the fall of the requirement before the TC, but have failed to stress the internal of the Caucus, as they expect it, because “after the vote on the gender identity law, the lunch was normal, they said they were going to make a presentation before the Tr “ibunal constitutional and even was subject”, told the Deputy Andrés Celis.
And it is apparently members of RN grew tired of fighting for issues values, because they consider it “a lost fight”.
Deputy Gonzalo Fuenzalida recognizes that the composition of the caucus is “quite dense and brings together parliamentarians from different lines of thought, which makes it difficult the work of so-called as values issues, because you never know if there will be full of” support”. But it adds that “no conflict, no fights, there are different looks in the party, but finally one is not in this position by the party”.
Lack of leadership while the values issue inflames passions, already not unleash conflicts or not as much as the generating take you “against the Government or leaking information to the press”, recognize from RN. And it is that the so-called internal diversity has meant more than a headache for the Executive, both so from La Moneda they recognize that management of the RN caucus “is still a pending task”.
Opposition inside, they recognize that the bench of RN is a real “birthday of monkey”, that it is impossible to negotiate an agreement with them, vision that is shared and supported from the sidewalk in front, a historic trade Deputy. “There is an Andrés Allamand, a thorn or a new Sebastián Piñera” acknowledges Deputy Celis.
A problem that is more than latent in the Government, they added from the Environment Minister of the Segpres, Gonzalo Blümel, who should lead the negotiations with Congress. Also the Deputy Fuenzalida recognizes him: “the Government bothers you this dispersion, I spoke about it with Minister Blümel, in contrast to the UDI, which manages to balance their votes more efficiently”.
“With RN can pass everything, it is a big Pandora’s, full of all the diversity that has the right,” adds Fuenzalida, in addition to stress that “RN is not a regiment that responds to the touch of the trumpets, but nobody pretends to go against the Government”.
This would be the main reason for the discomfort by the deployment of more religious sectors of RN before the law of gender identity. Since the opposition stressed that it is unnecessary to continue fighting “face a losing battle”, which is a Government “unnecessary damage” and that the “religious fanaticism must be outside of the Congress”.
The multipersonalidad is no secret that national renewal has a diverse integration of sectors of right. Liberals, conservatives, Evangelicals, socialcristianos, economic liberal and moral conservatives, female renewal and the conciliators are some fractions of the caucus in the Chamber of Deputies.
Members of the Evangelical world “are the most conservative and most unemployed persons in the Halacha”, joked a parliamentary opposition. Several remind deployment Deputy Romero, has been “very firm against the most progressive agendas of the Government”, in addition to direct an interpellation made in May to President Sebastián Piñera, when he shouted that “If insists that Daniela Vega is “woman, I was wrong to support it”.
But from the RN Caucus say that, despite being a group “recognized and peculiar,” does not have an or a great leader “that come with the evangelical agenda under his arm to light the way of our party”. A lack of leadership that seems to be expanding to other groups among parliamentarians.
Also are “the ancients”, among them Fernando Berger and René Manuel García, those members that election after election have managed to stay in his seat, “live your world, no one has idea whether they are liberal or conservative”, tells a parliamentary.
“Conciliator”, is the Group of members who try to keep a logic of balance, “the tense status quo that survives in RN”, are “cream cake, what unites us”, added from the bench. In this group include the deputies Mario Desbordes, the “liberal” Sebastián Torrealba, as also Leopoldo Pérez, who is recognized as a “conservador-moderado”.
Also, there is a group “between hybrid and strange”, they say in the party, at the time that emphasize that they never expected that from members of the youth wing would new impetus to the more “conservative and hard” nucleus of RN. There are two faces that draw attention: Camila Flores and Paulina Núñez, who stand out because “they are more plays”, and the Deputy Schalper, who would have given him – added – “deeper intellectual to a sector that was lost in the slogan without sustenance” and that their pairs of the caucus recognize as “retailer”, but not as a new emerging leader, since “it is usually only”.
Another important group is the “female nucleus”, which is composed of a duality between conservative and liberal. Historically dominated by the Congresswoman Marcela Sabat, from RN recognised that “has left competition” with the arrival of Nuñez and flowers. Although all serve different roles, there are several which recognize the position more “conciliatory” Sabbath leadership that can Excel, since the honourable Member would be more skillful “when it comes to accumulate power”.
Separate point is the Congresswoman Ximena Ossandón, the parliamentary “our bomb dog, goes and launches what no one dares to say, even if many times getting out of the established script”, highlights from the match. They add that it looks somewhat isolated in the Caucus, reason why would cost to see it in a more active role, or command.
