Healthy disagreement at bicameral level on controversial code

The wave of rejection of the backward-looking articles contained in the draft Penal Code approved by the Senate in two quick readings and behind the backs of a large sector of public opinion worthy of attention has been reinforced. A healthy exercise of the counterweight that the bicameral functionality provides to democracy against unilateralisms that are harmful to citizens.

A bell-ringing rescue from the benches as a whole, which begins with the proposal to review everything decided by the Upper House, which, beyond the announced and therefore expected story of denial of three causes, incurred in other innovations that are hurtful to groups of society that are recognized as defending human dignity and are familiar with the damage they would cause if they pass the final test in Congress.

Voices of opposition legislators, and certainly minority ones, began to dissent with a willingness to assert criteria without paying attention to excessive influences of external or partisan agendas on that parliamentary power. As an organ of greater plurality, representation and openness (which it now demonstrates) to other visions and legitimate interests, the degree of reasonableness that the deputies manage to give to the controversial project could lead to better results for society.

This healthy contradiction in the factors of power is a challenge that the legislative bodies must handle with wisdom and fairness in order to seek consensus. Approving a Penal Code is already too urgent to postpone.
