Javier Milei hopes that the Omnibus Law will be approved and refuses to give up more points. From the top of the Government, they maintain that the project that went from having 664 to 386 articles “would cease to make sense” if it undergoes more modifications. The fiscal chapter and the electoral reform have already been postponed.
An official told TN: “If we continue making concessions, it would cease to be our law and would become something empty. If they do not approve what we propose, which is already something quite small compared to what was previously proposed, it would become a problem for the opposition.”
That is the line that the ruling party maintains in case the Bases law is blocked and does not achieve a medium sanction. “Whoever wants to go against what the people voted for should raise their hand in public. If the proposals block us, they have to take charge and take responsibility before the electorate. “The people voted for us to do this,” said a leader.

That is why the Government is optimistically awaiting the Omnibus Law treaty on the premises: it has already removed the fiscal chapter and the electoral reform from the package. “Those were the obstacles and we removed them, what's missing? The opposition moves the goal whenever it can,” another leader told this medium.
The Minister of Security, Patricia Bullrich, expressed herself in the same way: “The law has had a lot of changes and must be dealt with without further delay. “When there are so many modifications and the objective is distorted, it is no longer useful.”
The block leaders of the allied opposition -Miguel Ángel Pichetto of Hacemos Coalificación Federal, Cristian Ritondo of the PRO and Rodrigo de Loredo of the UCR- assured that they will provide a quorum and that they will accompany much of what was left of the project, such as the delegation of powers of the president.
“We are going to provide a quorum as a first definition, we are going to contribute to the debate, to vote in general the majority of the bloc and to discuss most of the issues. We will try to be consistent with what we have maintained in the opinion,” said the head of the HCF bench outside Congress.

In the ruling party, they maintain that there is agreement on the key points, the general law, and that the detail of the article by article has not been defined. 40 hours of session are expected with intermediate quarters for the deputies to rest.
The parliamentary secretary, Omar de Marchi, was preparing the deputies of La Libertad Avanza for their first long session. He gave special folders to each of the legislators with parliamentary tools and explanations of the processes.

After the parliamentary work meeting that the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Martín Menem, held yesterday at 7 p.m. yesterday with the heads of the opposition blocs, La Libertad Avanza will meet its bloc early today prior to the 10 o'clock session.
They will tell you about the agreements obtained and the most difficult points that will be disputed in the Lower House. Without giving in on more articles, the ruling party will try to obtain half a sanction and polarize with the opposition.
