The Chilean Senate will hold a special session on April 4, Easter Sunday, to vote on the reform that postpones the upcoming municipal, regional and Constitutional Convention elections in the country. On March 28, President Sebastián Piñera announced that he would send a bill to the National Congress that postpones the elections scheduled for April 10 and 11 to May 15 and 16 in view of the recent upsurge in COVID-19 infections in the country.
On March 30, the Chamber of Deputies began debating the bill, and on March 31, the deputies passed it with 126 votes in favor, 3 against and 11 abstentions. On April 1, the senators began discussing it and after two consecutive sessions of exhaustive analysis, announced that they will hold the voting process this Sunday.
Along with the suspension of the upcoming elections, the bill also proposes to stop the ongoing election campaign until April 28 and delay the second round of mayoral and governor elections to June 13, and the primaries for the presidential and parliamentary elections to July 18. The general elections are scheduled for November 21 of this year.
