Conti: 'If the people want re-reelection, CFK will have to listen to them'
“The only thing that the opposition seems to have to offer is going against a constitutional amendment that even they themselves sometimes call for. Some of us have already expressed our support for it, and we’d like for the people to do the same thing,” Conti said in a radio interview.
The head of the Senate’s Constitutional Affairs Committee rejected the opposition’s arguments against a constitutional amendment.
“Cristina hasn’t event hinted at a constitutional amendment and has not expressed any desire to continue once her current term is over,” she warned, adding that she pitied “any opposition leader warning that they are going to put a limit when there is no need for it. The constitutional limit is there, and has been dealt with,” she stated.
“She keeps her word. If the people ask for it and vote for enough members of her party to call for an amendment I imagine Cristina will have to listen to the people,” the lawmaker concluded.
