“Can’t be a part of ‘I want this and it is this’” and that everything is part of a negotiation. “Because, among other things, the coalition is made up of five parties, not two parties. So one thing is what you want Town meeting. And what does he want? Colorado party? And what does he want? independent party? And what does he want? People’s Party? And what does he want? National Party?”, explained the president at a press conference.

On the other hand, he assured that the power of Parliament to carry out the negotiations of the resources for next year and that it cannot intervene. “He Parliament is strictly independent, autonomous, to make certain changes that are within the Constitution, I do not suggest that they are outside as was the initial article that I had presented Town meeting”, he remarked Lacalle Pou.
