Before panicking over rumors of restricted rights of transit and assembly, note that most deputies are against the idea of taking away these constitutional rights.
There is an initiative drafted and headed to the legislative current to be studied. It would suspend the freedom of transit and freedom of assembly for up to 30 days in order to combat the covid-19 pandemic.
Any suspension of constitutional rights requires the support of two thirds of the Legislative Assembly. 33 votes, more than half of Congress, have already sided against taking away these rights.
Many have insisted that such a drastic measure would have to come from the President and the Ministry of Health and be based on specific data showing that this would stop the spread of covid-19.
Some have gone as far as to say that such a measure would be reckless, causing undue panic among the public. It has also been pointed out that the Public Force is not trained to or big enough to enforce such measures.
