Yesterday the first meeting was held for the National Security Agreement between the opposition and the Government. In the instance, the Executive ruled out -again- working on the modernization of the anti-terrorist law.
An appointment that -for more than two hours- brought together the Minister of the Interior, Carolina Tohá, with the boards of directors of the UDI, RN, Evópoli and Republicanos , who presented their security proposals and asked that some bills on the matter be urgently needed.
But, what was it that came out clean? The government committed urgency to two projects: the critical infrastructure project and the project that creates the integrated intelligence system. In addition, Minister Tohá assured that -by December- they want to have the national security plan with the budgetary gloss and all the necessary detail.
Despite the progress, there is a point that would generate great difficulty in the continuity of the dialogues between the government and the opposition: The anti-terrorist law.
The president of the UDI, Senator Javier Macaya valued the meeting, said that a constructive instance was given, but that they await concrete signals and not just a change of attitude or discourse on the part of the government.< /p>
By this he meant that the specific ruling party vote accordingly with the story of La Moneda and that those who have opposed security projects today show their commitment.
Regarding the anti-terrorism law, the senator argued that there is a contradiction in the government that is not sustainable.
What the Executive responded. The Minister of the Interior, Carolina Tohá, did not refer as such to the possibility of introducing indications to modernize the anti-terrorism law, but she maintained that in the meeting they were shown the progress of the national policy against organized crime and that realized that there are great consensuses.

Along with this, she called on the opposition.
On behalf of the ruling party, the president of the PPD, Natalia Piergentilli, maintained that the The minister is not closed to evaluating any issue and invited Chile. We are going to allow the dialogue to advance.
