Government, opposition reject Malvinas referendum
Ruling Victory Front part and opposition lawmakers have coordinated efforts to draw up a rejection move against the Referendum held by the British administration of Malvinas Islands this weekend.
The head of the Victory Front caucus in the Senate Miguel Ángel Pichetto, his caucus colleague Daniel Filmus, Progressive Front senators Rubén Giustiniani and Jaime Linares, and Radical Party senator Ernesto Sanz issued an official request to hold a special Congress session and pass the rejection statement condemning the Referendum call.
“We must denounce the trap that hides under the appearance of popular participation in an implanted population case. Such advertising maneuver has no validity for international law”, Filmus affirmed.
