The Independent Democratic Union party (UDI) is open to reach a political agreement to the crisis experienced by the government and the political parties, due to Penta, Caval and Soquimich cases.
The president of the party, Javier Macaya, has held meetings with officials of the Government to try to find a solution to the problem affecting the current political situation of the country.
The party wants that the investigation is conducted within the current legal framework since they affirm that what is being investigated is irregular funding, which has an expiration date of one year established by law.
Macaya said there must not be a political “agreement”. However, since these cases fall under the category of legal expiration, we can find a way out, arguing that prior similar cases were solved administratively.
He also expressed that there must be an acknowledgment that mistakes were made and legislate for the future, and incorporate new sanctions.
