The Republican Party defended the current Constitution by arguing that «it is the instrument that has allowed Chile to become the most successful country in Latin America, freeing millions of Chileans from extreme poverty and building social, economic and strong policies that guarantee a serious, stable and guaranteeing country of the rights of its citizens.» Finally, they ruled that «a new constitution, drafted to the eaves of abuses of street violence, by the same politicians who have failed to defend Chileans in the last 20 years, will be nothing more than a false promise.»
