The Senate approved in first reading the Organic Law of the Electoral Regime, which seeks to regulate the voting process in the country.
The project, presented by senators Alexis Victoria and Ramón Rogelio Genao, was approved unanimously with 24 votes in favor, despite the fact that some differences were revealed in the debate.
This reform, in addition to regulating the exercise of the right to elect and be eligible and regulating the voting process, contemplates the consequences of eventual violations of the spending ceiling of candidates in campaigns.
It also provides for the creation of the Specialized Attorney for the Investigation and Prosecution of Electoral Crimes and Offenses.
This law had to be reintroduced after expiring for the elapsed time, although it had been previously approved by the Senate and had passed to the Chamber of Deputies.
