Congress of the Republic. August 8, Bogota. The Minister of the Interior Alfonso Prada, together with the Ministry of Finance, the National Electoral Council, and the National Civil Registry Office, presented before Congress important legislative projects: Tax Reform and Reform of the Electoral Code. 

Minister Prada expressed gratitude for the presence of the government bench of the Pacto Historico (historic pact), coalition parties, and presidents of the House and Senate of the Republic. “Today we have important legislative initiatives to discuss. Here we also demonstrate the importance and priority we give to tax reform. We appreciate the support and this space, of all that the country requires, with an economic point of view, to implement and start seeing the reality as it stands once more. This change was proposed by President Gustavo Petro and is backed by the votes of the Colombian people.» 

Additionally, together with the National Electoral Council and the National Civil Registry, the Reform of the Electoral Code was established. “We want to adjust it to the decisions of the Constitutional Court with the purpose of modernizing, harmonizing, and articulating the electoral legislation, delivering a tool of supreme importance for the technological future. The government is ready to hold the majority dialogue with its parties, to give the arguments to these parties, so that they understand the importance of these initiatives for the country,” said the Head of the Interior Ministry.
