Congress Ends Legislative Term on June 20: as yet no Confirmation of Call for Extraordinary Sessions
20 junio 2020

On June 20, both the Senate and the House of Representatives ended the first legislative period of 2020, held for the first time in its history in virtual mode. So far, there have been no confirmations from the Executive about a possible call for extraordinary sessions. If this does not happen, the National Congress will resume sessions at the beginning of the next regular period, set for July 20, 2020. 

For the next semester, it is expected that new legislative authorities will be appointed and that progress will be made passing measures aimed at reducing the effects of the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. These include reforms to current labor legislation, incentives for the industrial and commercial sector, and the promotion of social assistance policies.
