The discussion of the Omnibus Law in the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation lasted more than three days and this Friday, finally, the general vote on the initiative was taken, with a positive result for the Government. On Tuesday, the discussion on the rule in particular will continue.
“There is a dynamism in the Chamber that no one knows how it will end,” said UCR deputy Facundo Manes. And he stressed that privatizations are one of the topics to be discussed prior to the session for the vote in particular. The neuroscientist voted against and minutes later he shared a photo on social media of him in which he is seen with the Constitution and the legend: “They don't see it.”

For his part, the president of the We Make Federal Coalition bloc, Miguel Ángel Pichetto, asserted: “On Tuesday we are going to continue the treatment and try to vote on the law in its entirety. Modifications can be made at the request of any deputy. Emergencies and delegated powers is one of the central axes.” “We are going to follow in principle the content of the law, although there are some issues that deserve discussion,” he said.
In turn, the president of the PRO bloc, Cristian Ritondo, emphasized that “we have to look at the PAIS Tax and the Guarantee and Sustainability Fund. “We are going to work to modify what is necessary, but many of the things that the law proposes would have been proposed by us,” he said. And he added: “A large part of the law in particular is going to be voted on.”

“We are very happy, it was a very satisfactory session,” said the president of La Libertad Avanza, Oscar Zago. “We have the votes within the general election and we are going to continue talking with other deputies to build more consensus,” he added.

“The parliamentary procedure was a shame. They changed the articles that they eliminated from the opinion while we were debating it,” said the head of the Unión por la Patria bench, Germán Martínez. And he pointed out: “We are not following the vote today because the ruling party does not have the votes for the particular discussion. “We have to be very attentive to what happens between now and Tuesday.”
“It is a very good starting point for a new Argentina, where the center is the individual, far from those concepts of homeland or groups. Let there be freedom,” said Together for Change legislator José Luis Espert. “The priority is to have a 0 deficit to end the worst tax, which is inflation. For that, some province is going to have to adjust to give the Nation the resources it loses,” he added.
Along the same lines, the Minister of Security, Patricia Bullrich, expressed from her X account: “The Law of Bases and Starting Points for the Freedom of Argentines is a tool to get out of the decadence of decades. I congratulate all the deputies who took this step for the well-being of Argentines.”
