Gov’t calls for special Lower House session next Wednesday

The head of the Victory Front caucus in the Lower House, Agustín Rossi.

Amidst the discontent today's Lower House failed session aroused, several deputies addressed the press and stressed the Government's stance. The head of the Victory Front caucus in the Lower House Agustín Rossi assured President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's administration is not willing to accept the cheque tax law amendment but it is in favour of debating it. As for the same sex marriage debate, Rossi called for a special session to be held next Wednesday in order to discuss the controversial bill which allows it.

"We are calling for a new session to be held next week, on Wednesday at 10:00am with the only purpose of debating the same sex marriage," Rossi assured.

As regards this bill, the resolution which the Family and General Legislation committees have issued modifies the Civil Code and replaces the terms "man and woman" for general words implying no sex.

The discussion of this bill began last year, but was never able to be debated at the room. It is supported by the Argentine Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transsexuals and the Argentine Homosexual Community.

Rossi also went deeper in the failure of the Lower House session and stated that "things were not clear enough" for the debate to begin. And he insisted: "We do not agree with the cheque tax law, but we are willing to debate the gay marriage issue."
