The lobbyist legislator turned on the inmate of the Multicolor Coalition by stating that people perceive that the National Party (PN) is the one in power, and not the government alliance itself.
According to Domenech, the country “He does not deserve the anxiety of a government that cannot govern” Therefore, CA will act “responsibly”, since “because the country and the people are above the party”, and, in the understanding of the legislator, “patriotism cannot be just a word”.
