The National Congress of Chile held this Wednesday (17) the first draw to determine which deputies must pass a test of drugs .

The exam will be done through the collection of hair strands and the application of the test will be biannual and random. The idea is that all parliamentarians have to go through the control twice during the four years of their legislature.

If the winner unjustifiably refuses to take the test, he will be sanctioned by the Chamber’s Ethics and Transparency Commission.

The names of lawmakers who test positive will be made public. The parliamentarians barred from the exam will also have to authorize the breach of bank secrecy.

If there is a transaction above 800 UF (approximately BRL 126 thousand), they must justify the amounts. If this is not possible, the information will be forwarded to the Chamber’s Ethics and Transparency Commission or to the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

Why will a drug test be conducted in Congress?

The new code for the control of drug use in the Chamber of Deputies and Deputies regulates the prevention of the undue consumption of narcotics, psychotropic drugs or substances and, in addition, establishes the periodic execution of controls in the parliamentarians in office.

The objective is to raise the standards of transparency in parliamentary work and to curb the commission of drug trafficking crimes, in addition to dispensing with any relationship between the Chamber and the drug trafficking networks existing in the country.

The text indicates that the Chamber will establish a general policy on prevention and rehabilitation, which includes the definition of a plan of prevention actions for all people working in the corporation.

In this first round, 78 deputies were drawn.
