Legislative procedure | THE VIEWER

A new session of Congress concluded on the eve of the first two years of the current Government. Petro, who demonstrated his ability to create opposition by promoting debates against the administrations that preceded him, has shown, both he and his bench, a lot of inexperience in managing the State. Although at the beginning he managed to carry out initiatives, such as the tax reform, thanks to the coalition that he managed to integrate, he did not do the same with other proposals when he excluded from the cabinet ministers who, although they were not related to his program, made it possible to extract forward their initial proposals.

The panorama changed later when Congress did not work for him and the reforms that he promised in the campaign have encountered difficulties in their processing and several sectors threaten to sue them before the Constitutional Court for procedural defects. These types of objections will be analyzed in the high court, which studies them very carefully.

In the Constitution there is an article that allows interpretation to endanger any approved law. It is article 149, which says: “Any meeting of members of Congress that, with the purpose of exercising functions of the Legislative Branch of public power, is held outside the constitutional conditions, will lack validity; No effect may be given to the acts carried out, and those who participate in the deliberations will be punished in accordance with the laws.”

With an extensive interpretation, any law is in danger of falling with this article. For this reason, congressmen must be extremely careful in processing the projects within the conditions established by the Constitution and the laws if they do not want to be surprised by a blow that would not be soft at all.

The education law has already collapsed, for reasons of faith… of Fecode. What will happen to pensions and work? Suddenly they make the cut in the Constitutional Court.
