“Chile deserves an impeccable, sober, brief process, in which the best of politics is expressed (whose task is to mediate and build bridges) and not the sad spectacle of sterile confrontation, lack of generosity and vision that has led us to frustration. , boredom and disappointment,” they said in a statement.
In the midst of attempts to close a constitutional agreement, the alliance of the Government and Chile Vamos, added to some movements with parliamentary representation, Amarillos por Chile issued a harsh statement questioning the scope of the political dialogue.
The statement maintains that “two months ago, the public clearly and categorically rejected a constitutional text that divided us as a country instead of uniting us. The Rejection was not only for the text presented but also for the process itself, which was characterized by its lack of seriousness, sectarianism and intolerance. The majority of Chileans want a new Constitution, but not to resume the previous failed process, repeating the same mistakes and shortcomings. In recent weeks, various proposals have emerged that seem to want to repeat the same thing. The country is not available for that. Less in the current circumstances of insecurity, uncertainty and economic crisis. We cannot risk making a Convention like the one we already had: we have to be responsible with Chile”, the letter reads.
In addition, they add that “we have talked, touring the country, with thousands of Chilean men and women and we echo their desire for unity, peace, order and good sense. We propose that it be a Constituent Council elected democratically and entirely by the National Congress, in which the different sensibilities and political visions are represented, which assumes the task of drafting a new Magna Carta in the shortest possible time, based on the twelve points of the pre constitutional agreement on which they have been working in recent weeks. This will force reaching great agreements, the only way to move towards the future to face the difficult challenges and threats that the country faces today. Chile does not want a new Convention, it wants a new and good Constitution”.
“Once a text is reached that arouses a broad consensus, it will be submitted to a plebiscite. It will be a fully democratic process, in which, on the one hand, we will validate the institutions of our representative democracy and, on the other hand, the citizens will have the last word. This is how other countries in the world have done it in similar processes and with a successful result,” said the Amarillos por Chile table.
And they add that “Chile deserves an impeccable, sober, brief process, in which the best of politics is expressed (whose task is to mediate and build bridges) and not the sad spectacle of sterile confrontation, lack of generosity and vision that has led to frustration, ennui and disappointment.”
Faced with this, in the declaration of the leaders of the center they called on “the leaders and representatives of all the political parties and coalitions that participate in the negotiation for a new constituent process, to trust the democratically elected Congress and support this proposal.” that we present, that we are sure interprets the feeling of the majority of the country”.
The board of Yellows for Chile closes its statement underlining what is relevant to judgments and points of the real demand of the citizenry. They maintain that “the country's energy must be focused today on defeating our true enemies (crime, terrorism, drug trafficking, inequalities, the educational crisis) and not on deepening the divisions among ourselves. We invite all political sectors to truly listen to the public and restore hope with a well-done constitutional process. It is time for greatness and democratic responsibility,” they said.
