Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

As if more evidence was needed to show the real intentions of the far left. Luis Mesina, (Mr. NO+AFP), slightly jumping the gun, now assumes the Apruebo vote will win, and states that the first item on the agenda of the appointed "Constituyentes Conventionales", should be to assume authority and clo...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

The last CEP survey publicly available in .pdf format is Estudio Nacional de Opinión Pública N° 84, Diciembre 2019'. The image shown below, from the Tercera article mentioned, doesn't reflect the information available in that document. ' TH-encuesta-Piñera-2a.jpg However it is available within the d...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

A few posts ago, I linked to a video with an expert on Constitutional Law, interviewed by Tomas Mosciatti on CNN. Apart from stating quite clearly that a new constitution would not resolve any of the social issues that have been used as an excuse for this attempted power grab, he did say that there ...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Here is the problem. There needs to be an exit from this crisis that neither gives too much ground to the extreme right nor the extreme left in Chile. This is the sort of crap the extreme right is talking about as a solution: http://www.intelige.cl/conflicto-insurreccional-en-chile/ http://www.inte...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

..anyway there is more than 50% of voting voters that are right, or leaning towards the right "no" vote; or put another way, only around 25% of the eligible voters, that really showup to vote, need to vote "no" to kill the new constitution process. That is not a very high bar to jump, especially co...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Huh. Serves me right for quoting an official government website....Radio BioBio says different. Pese a que el plebiscito de entrada se realizará con voto voluntario, :!: se estableció que el ratificatorio se desarrollará con voto obligatorio. https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nacional/chile/2019/1...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Yeah, everyone is a wannabe constitutional lawyer here. I would hope that this guy has more idea than most, though. ..el sistema constitucional que tenemos hoy dia ha sido disfuncional, se ha vuelto disfuncional, especialmente después de las reformas electorales del año 2015..... Sergio Verdugo “Una...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

According to SERVEL, the Chilean electoral service, voting in the upcoming plebiscite is ̶o̶b̶l̶i̶g̶a̶t̶o̶r̶y̶ Edit: no it isn't, even though they say it is! . Permanent Residents may have already been automatically registered to vote. Electoral Status can be checked here , where the designated voti...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Associating “the left” with wanting a new constitution is weird, as there are many people on both sides who want a new constitution. It’s more the contents and the method of creating a new constitution that is a left/right issue. . Constitucion.jpg . I actually read through the whole of Chile's Con...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

well, as I suspected early on, and that suspicion is growing every day, the left and the new constitution does not have nearly as much support as they are making it sound. millions of chileans have done what chileans tend to do about everything, keep their mouth shut. The silent majority voted for ...

Friday night & Saturday morning

From Galeria CIMA : Plaza Italia yesterday evening. A truck driver showing "solidarity" by dumping half his load onto the road. At least it was only sand, not rocks. . solidarity.jpg ' . Was this acceptable behaviour before the latest anti-disturbios legislation was enacted? My common sense, at leas...
