The Coordinating Committee for the Protection of Natural Resources and the Rights of the Ngobe Bugle People, chaired by Rogelio Montezuma, expressed his pleasure from the full Legislature. Similarly, the General Cacica Ngobe Bugle, Silvia Carrera, apologized for the street closures and demonstrations. Carrera asked the Minister of Government to send a message to President Martinelli to "be more consultative and not impose the law."
Deputy Gabriel Mendez, Democratic Change, said they approved Bill 415, "making sure it did not suffer any changes during the process." (Estrella)
