In this context, the representative of the Valparaíso region and member of Modatima, Rodrigo Mundaca, referred to the current moment in which the constitutional process is going through the Rojas case, who acknowledged not having cancer, despite the fact that his campaign focused on the disease and made raffles to pay for the alleged treatment.
After being consulted, the governor indicated that “I’m not going to be foolish about the question Rojas Vade, because it’s not my style. It seems to me that what has happened in the constituent process, regarding this constituent it’s bad, It is a situation that affects the whole of the constituent process, it is a situation that, in addition, it weakens the popular camp ”.
For this reason, he considered that “as Vice President Jaime Bassa and Elisa Loncon have also declared, they have to make the most appropriate decisions precisely so that we do not continue to disappoint those of us who have fought for a constitution for so long that it ends with one of privileges and rights for the rich ”.

For 200 years Santiago has been a kingdom and its elites have been the ones who have determined the course of our own destiny, of our territories, of the communities ”.
He also stressed that the process is the result of the social struggle, since “it implies having decentralization in the political, administrative and financial spheres. This means having greater skills, today we have very few competencies, we have 15 competencies derived from the Ministry of Housing, the Ministry of Economy, and Transportation, but we also have functions that are very important for our territories: normative, administrative, budgetary, planning, coordination and supervision, budgetary and political ”.
“We don’t expect anything from the government”

“From this government we do not expect anything, on the contrary, we hope that it will end soon.“He added.
Similarly, he summoned the presidential candidates who will speak at the national meeting to commit themselves and assume that “democratically elected governors must be the hierarchical and administrative superiors of all regions of the country.”
