The president of the Senate Constitution Commission, Felipe Harboe (PPD), postponed the vote on the idea of ​​legislating for equal marriage , arguing that he should listen to various organizations. The Movilh denounced that the parliamentarian did not allow his intervention. “The processing of today was totally useless and inefficient, because no step was advanced . For a long time, the Constitution Commission had to vote on the idea of ​​legislating, taking into account that the Friendly Settlement Agreement that the State of Chile signed with our organization before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights for the promotion of equal marriage dates from 2016, ”said the Movilh leader, Rolando Jiménez. He stressed that “ this is a commitment of the State, not the government of the day, or the legislative composition of the moment. To promote is to promote, accelerate, contribute to make reality . It is clear that to date no state power has fulfilled its international commitment. ”
