They continue adding breaks within the People's Party, after the vote that left Vlado Mirosevic (Liberal Party) as president of the Chamber. On this occasion, the expulsion of deputy Francisco Pulgar, who was one of the votes in favor of the new leader of the corporation, was confirmed.
The independent deputy Francisco Pulgar confirmed this Wednesday that he was expelled from the People's Party bench.
According to a 24-hour audiovisual record, the parliamentarian said from the National Congress that “as an independent in the PDG caucus I have been expelled”.
Even the legislator pointed out that this determination was made “by applying their internal regulations, going on to carry out and breaching article 43 of the same regulations, where it is stated that for a member to be expelled there must be unanimity, that was not fulfilled.”
Let's remember that this happened after some deputies of the PDG supported Vlado Mirosevic and disassociated themselves from their other bench colleagues. Specifically, Francisco Pulgar, Rubén Oyarzo and Karen Medina supported the deputy from the Liberal Party.
This led the caucus leader of this coalition, Yovana Ahumada, to take the unilateral decision to suspend these parliamentarians from all commissions.
Even the former presidential candidate of the People's Party, Franco Parisi, asked harsh sanctions against the deputies who voted for Vlado Mirosevic to be president of the Lower House.
“How did we come to make this mistake? The entire PDG was clear that you could not vote for Vlado 'Humbertito' Mirosevic, because he is an 'Octobrist', he validated violence, he was for plurinationality, he was about to give Arica to the Incas,” Parisi assured.

Pulgar also indicated that “from the beginning I said that I was going to respect an agreement and I was never going to join in block votes. They told me that they were going to respect me, but time told otherwise.”
The parliamentarian also confessed that this expulsion took place after the “request by deputy Roberto Arroyo”, made last Monday.
“He made an expulsion request towards me, a subject that was never notified to me, I just found out about this,” added Pulgar.
Although the deputy said that &# 8220;it is an unfortunate fact”, he stressed that this “does not prevent me from continuing to work in this House”.
According to La Radio, from the PDG bench no they will make a statement about Pulgar's expulsion.
In addition, it was reported that the vote that defined this was 5 to 3, because the deputy Rubén Oyarzo was disqualified because he had previously been suspended for violations of the regulations.
