National Assembly Declares Recess To Calm Emotions In Debate of Bill 486

PoliticsAfter a group of people who were in the observation stands burst violently into the chamber, the National Assembly decided to declare a recess in the discussion of Bill 486. When the situation occurred, the deputies withdrew from the area of ​​the plenum. The session should end at 1:30 pm, if no deputies are present in the Chamber the debate on the project will be suspended for today. This initiative would allow the sale of state owned shares in the electricity companies on the Panamanian stock market, and establishes provisions for regulating the electricity market.

Editor's Comment: At this moment a group of PRD lawmakers went to the front gate and tried to get the security guards to open a gate to let more people in. After they refused, they turned around and gave politically motivated speeches to the television cameras. Now Juan Carlos Navarro showed up with a group of supporters, and they are banging on the gates and demanding access to the National Assembly. Navarro is talking to the television cameras, through the closed gate (he's outside, the camera crew is inside.)
