    Argentina's Lower House okays extra powers to President Milei

    The bill will next go to the Senate, where Milei's LLA lacks the strength to get automatic approval and would therefore have to exert a fair amount of political muscle

    Argentina's Lower House Tuesday agreed to grant President Milei on a temporary basis certain decision-making powers originally reserved by the Constitution to the Legislative Branch, it was reported in Buenos Aires. The neverending Parliamentary session also decided in favor of the partial and full privatization of several state-owned companies, among other topics included in the so-called “Omnibus Law” bill -formally the Bases Law draft that Milei regards as the starting point of his “chainsaw” economic policies.
