Although the target of 12,140,342 votes, the threshold for the Anti-Corruption Consultation, was not achieved, the country celebrates that more than 11 million voters went to vote in elections that are the first time they are held without subsidizing transport, without Lunches or villagers and where nobody knew who wanted to buy a voice.
Between the organizers of the consultation and the people in general felt yesterday a bittersweet feeling, because despite the good results the goal was not reached, namely reaching the threshold of participation, the third part of the electoral count, that is to say : 33.33% of the total number of people authorized to exercise their voting rights in the country or abroad. Without this requirement, no plebiscite can become a mandate.
This means that, although more than 99 per cent of voters have answered yes to the seven questions, their opinion can not be considered mandatory, at least from a legal point of view, because from a symbolic point of view all are considered the most important voices in the history of the country. , because of the circumstances in which it was voted
The question that got the most votes was the two, who said: You agree that people who have been convicted of corruption and crimes against the government must comply with all sentences in prison, without the possibility of special detention, and that the unilaterally can the contracts with them and with the legal entities of which they are part terminate, without any compensation for the contractor or the possibility to renew contracts with the state? This question reached 11,666,550 votes.
The least voted was the seven, which requires that politicians have reached only 11,391,007 votes for only three periods in public companies.
All questions reached the individual threshold, which amounted to more than six million votes, but the general threshold was not reached.
On Tuesday the ballots will be held, the same day the organizers will hand over the questions to Congress to include them in the anti-corruption law that they will process.
