Argentina : Milley's reforms receive initial approval in the House of Representatives amid protests

The Argentine Congress took the first step towards approving President Javier Meli's reforms, as the reform package received initial approval in the House of Representatives, amid massive protest demonstrations.
The House of Representatives initially supported the reforms by 144 votes in favor and 109 votes against, on the third day of intense discussions and street protest demonstrations.

After initial general approval, the council is expected to discuss the reforms in detail next week.

This vote will provide lawmakers “the opportunity to show which side of history they want to be on,” Milley said in a social media post before the vote on Friday.

Argentine President: We will implement economic reforms and end inflation within two years
The reform package includes many areas, including privatization, criminal law, cultural and social affairs. It may be amended before being referred to the Senate.

Milley, who is affiliated with the right-wing libertarian movement, began his work in the presidential position after winning the elections last October with a number of strict steps, including floating the national currency while reducing its value by about 50%, reducing government support for fuel and transportation, and reducing the number of ministries by half. Abolishing many government regulatory measures on the economy and taking measures to reduce budget expenditures.

His policies sparked widespread protests among citizens . The police used tear gas again to disperse the demonstrators in front of the Parliament headquarters on Friday.

At the same time, Milley's steps affected the position of the International Monetary Fund, which agreed on Wednesday to allocate about $4.7 billion in financial aid to Argentina.

It is worth noting that Argentina has been experiencing an economic crisis that has been going on for several decades, with the inflation rate reaching more than 200%, and the poverty level at about 40% of the population.
