Amendment 3, aiming to shorten the time needed for amendments to take effect enabling them to be passed twice a year has failed to pass in the senate.


“I think all the senators agreed… this amendment is not gonna pass.”

Before appearing on the ballot, constitutional amendments have to be read twice and pass a vote of the senate. “I think all the senators agreed… this amendment is not gonna pass.” Said Rep. Roberto Sardinha [EE] in describing the feeling in the room during the first reading.

Sardinha’s feeling wasn’t wrong. “I don’t like this amendment” Rep. Phelippe Souza-Herod [CS] remarked after the second reading. The unanimous vote took place shortly after.
