He PIT-CNT announced that it will deliver the signatures for the plebiscite next Saturday the 27th at 1:00 p.m., the day on which the constitutional deadline expires to present the accessions and be able to promote this initiative in against social security reform promoted by the current government.

The union center informed the Legislative powerthrough a note addressed to the Vice President of the Republic, Beatriz Argimónwith the proposed day and time for the delivery of signatures.

The Legislative Branch told Telemundo that the total number of signed ballots will involve the mobilization of approximately 80 boxes, which must be sent the same day to the Electoral Court and whose transfer is already being coordinated.

The authorization of the plebiscite requires more than 270,000 signatures, equivalent to 10% of the electoral roll for internal elections, although it is always necessary to exceed that number due to signatures that could be annulled due to errors or inconsistencies after a review.

The PIT-CNT attacked Álvaro Delgado for his statements about the plebiscite

From the social networks of PIT-CNT indicated that “the success of the campaign” to collect signatures “has a flip side” and a “strategy of fear, misrepresentation and disqualifications by detractors,” among whom include the former Secretary of the Presidency and presidential candidate for the National Party (PN), Álvaro Delgado.

Delgado had recently stated that the initiative “repeals” the social security system and “confiscates 22,000 million dollars” belonging to the savings of voluntary citizens in the Pension Savings Fund Administrators (AFAP)”.

For his part, the PIT-CNT affirms that this is not true, and that the nationalist candidate declined to publicly debate the proposed proposals, which seek to establish “social security as a fundamental human right” and “direct the Uruguay towards a comprehensive reform of social security”.
