Meanwhile, Raul Soto said that “we have had a very positive meeting. The government has conveyed to us a little what it is thinking from the point of view of the legislative itinerary for this year, the priorities, the urgencies, the review of the motions and messages that are in the folder, where the emphasis will be placed.”
For his part, the president of the Senate, Álvaro Elizalde, said that “we are going to send our proposal to the government, we are going to work with the committees.”
“The government is also going to send us its different priorities and on that basis there will be a dialogue coordination between two branches of the State that are independent, that are autonomous, but that must be coordinated for a legislative work of excellence,” added the PS senator.
