Mendoza legislators had a virtual session

For the first time, the Mendoza Legislature took hand to this tool. It was in the Senator House. The virtual session was absent.


We are not going to present the situation as “the first time in history,” even if so. It is that, although technically true, the grandiloquence that that phrase connotes is not consistent with reality. This is because “history”, in this case, would be only the last 5 or 10 years, where there has been the technology necessary to do such meetings by videoconferencing. However,  the virtual session of the  Mendoza  Legislature has been a success. 

The Chamber of Senators sat virtual in  compliance with the “state of permanent session” and without violating the national decree of “social, preventive and compulsory isolation”  due to the pandemic of  COVID-19 . The only “absent” was Senator Alexander Abraham.

The deputy governor and president of the Senate, Mario Abed, decided to “establish the functioning of the Corps using  appropriate ICT platforms that allow the conduct of online sessions, taking into account the seriousness of the situation prevailing in the Province , in accordance with the provisions of Art.85 of the Provincial Constitution and Article 19 of the Internal Rules of Procedure of this House”.

Abed highlighted the work developed in this unpublished session: “I'm going to try to have this virtual conversation and not only in the session, but where we can all talk and resolve any doubts they have.  We will try to be able to do it every day, we have hired this system for a long time and we will continue to use it ,” he said.

 National model 

This modality allowed  all legislators and writers to continue to carry out their work without having to move from their homes  and thus respecting the mandatory isolation order decreed by the President of the Nation.

The news of this successful virtual session in Mendoza was replicated in all national media to the point that now  the Congress of the   Nation  , the legislatures of CóRdoba and San Luis, and the Provincial Councils are seeking advice from the authorities of the Mendoza Legislature on the results obtained and how to implement the system  to imitate this modality in their premises.
