    Argentine Parlasur members will have immunity limited to their opinions

    The Electoral court ruled that only elected federal members from the Lower House and Senate have immunity from imprisonment

    Argentine elected members to the Mercosur parliament, Parlasur will not have immunity from imprisonment, according to a ruling from the country's Electoral Chamber. This means those Argentine candidates elected to the regional parliament on 25 October will only have immunity for their opinions while exercising their posts.
