During a plenary session on [16 January, Congress] approved the constitutional reform bill to eliminate the confidence vote requirement that must be fulfilled after the formation of a new Ministerial Cabinet. The bill was approved with 75 votes in favor, 46 against, and no abstentions. It should be noted that constitutional reform bills require the approving vote from a number higher than two thirds (87) of the legal number of legislators (130). However, given that this proposal did not get that number of votes, it shall be ratified by a referendum, in accordance with the provisions of Article 206 of the Political Constitution.
