Opposition parliamentarians criticized that Chartism and its “satellites” are preparing to remove Senator Kattya González (PEN). Because of an unconstitutional shield installed months ago, 30 votes are now required.
The order would have come up at the last meeting of the Colorado Honor Political Command. This is a reaction to the situation of Senator Hernán Rivas (ANR, HC), who will be forced to leave the Senate if the investigation against him ends due to the use of a false university degree to join and even lead the Jury for the Prosecution of the Magistrate (JEM). ).
The official charge will be the investigation against José Luis Torales, former president of PEN and official of the Comptroller’s Office commissioned by the office of Kattya González. Currently, he is being investigated in a double case and the Chartists accuse the senator of being the accomplice of an alleged plotter.
According to reports, the Chartists are expected to request an extraordinary session of the Senate for next Tuesday and proceed to remove him on the same date.
30 votes are needed to remove Kattya González
In the Senate, the ruling party will need 30 votes because last December in the plenary session a “self-shield” was approved. This is when they changed the internal regulations by resolution and unconstitutionally increased the majority to remove a senator.
However, it is not ruled out that the Chartists will run the session, ignoring their own protection, return to what the Constitution says and reject González with a quorum of 23 now and a simple majority.
Senator Esperanza Martínez (FG) warned and criticized an open campaign by the “Chartist horde” to remove opposition senators. “More than 100,000 people trusted Kattya,” emphasized deputy Raúl Benítez (PEN). “He upset the mafia,” said activist Juan Grassi.
