The need for a query is evaluated for Rural Land Law
Posted On 29 Sep 2014
Mauricio Proaño (AP party), Vicepresident of the Food Sovereignty Comission, said that is not necessary to perform a pre-legislative query for the draft Rural Lands Act.
“If there are some items that affect the collective rights, in that case, a pre-legislative consultation will be done, but if there are items that guarantee collective rights, that is another thing, we are ensuring the territory in the law,” said Proaño, who clarified that a query would be defined after the first debate and with a query to the Constitutional Court (CC).
César Umajinga (PK party), on the contrary, said that indigenous people should be consulted. He noted that the CONAIE will meet this week to discuss the progress of the project.
