Legislators finished voting on 189 basic motions presented to the bill to reform the Regulations of the Legislative Assembly.
On Wednesday, they will begin to analyze revision motions, that is, proposals to allow a change of criteria on the final vote on a specific motion.
When that process ends, the final discussion of the bill will begin, and then be voted on. This Tuesday, the legislators approved the suspension of the legislative commissions foreseen for this Wednesday, both in the morning and in the afternoon, in order to focus exclusively on that final vote.
It should be noted they approved not to hold a session on any legislative body on Thursday, as the lack of a quorum was discernible because a group of legislators will attend the opening of the container terminal of APM Terminals in Limón.
Carolina Hidalgo, president of the Congress, explained that for that purpose 38 votes are required, however, she did not risk assuring that minimum quantity, because the negotiations in the Legislative Assembly can change suddenly.
In addition, in previous sessions, they agreed to reduce the total time for a legislator to refer to a motion from 15 to 10 minutes. Therefore, they would save up almost five hours for each proposal.
