PS deputy Marcelo Schilling explained why he was one of the two Socialists who abstained in the vote on the fourth withdrawal of 10%, which finally advanced with 94 votes in favor, 39 against and 9 abstentions. Right on the edge – he needed 93 – so the critics pointed to Schilling. And he justified by saying it was to “not hand over a destroyed country” to the next president.
“There are reasonable grounds to think that some people still require this support, as is the case with women who do not pay them aliity,” he began by saying.
Faced with a possible consequence on the part of the Socialist party in the event that the vote for the fourth withdrawal will not reach the minimum to be approved, he argued that, “I have not made my political life an easy life, I left as Allende’s bodyguard, in case it is not remembered.”
Later, in statements to CNN Chile, and for the possible consequences for the country that the approval of the fourth withdrawal will bring, he indicated that, “we delivered to Piñera an orderly country and he is returning a ‘milestone’.”
“I don’t want the next government to fail because it ended up handing over a destroyed country,” he said.
