The controversy arose, after deputies, rejected a meeting that was taking place in an adjoining room between the Minister of Finance and national renewal parliamentarians. This, amid the discussion by the project of withdrawal of up to 10% of the AFPs’ funds.
For several minutes the debate was suspended in the Chamber of Deputies where the draft withdrawal of up to 10% of AFPs funds is expected to be voted on today. The controversy arose after opposition mPs rejected a meeting that was taking place in an adjoining room between the Minister of Finance, Ignacio Briones and national renewal parliamentarians. Even a group of them came to knock on the door where the secretary of state was, asking that they finish the meeting and enter the Chamber to listen to the interventions. In the middle of the chambers, he saw them rise from their seats and out into the hallway. At that time, upon consultation by the press about the draft circulating and where an extension of the benefits would be proposed to the plan to support the measured class, Minister Briones declined to refer, ensuring that it will do so when the time comes.
