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.

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.
