Discussion with Delgado
The Secretary of State starred in a discussion with Deputy Viviana Delgado (PEV) on Tuesday, which earned him opposition criticism.
According to the legislator, after a session of the Education Commission of the Lower House, Avila approached to ask for the reopening of a school in Maipú. According to Delgado, the Minister of Education yelled at him.
Avila’s reaction triggered that Deputy Delgado did not appear in the general vote on the government’s tax reform. Delgado was absent along with Pamela Jiles (IND) and Mónica Arce (IND), key votes that influenced the rejection of the initiative.
On that episode, Avila said that “we have already talked (with the president), and that basically today has to leave us some lessons. I am a teacher, so what one learns, every circumstance of life is an apprenticeship.”
