Parlasur Direct Elections: A Step towards Integration

The long-awaited communication has arrived: the National Decree 775/2015 formalized the direct election of Argentine representatives to the Mercosur Parliament (PARLASUR), concomitant with the general elections on next October 25.


Meanwhile, primary elections will be held on August 9. The citizens will have the opportunity to elect 43 Argentine representatives, according to the Ouro Preto Protocol (1994), an Additional Protocol to the Treaty of Asunción on the Institutional Structure of MERCOSUR. The PARLASUR, which was instituted in 2005 and established in 2006, started to operate on May 7, 2007, replacing the Joint Parliamentary Commission of Mercosur (CPC), which was composed of national MPs coming from the member states.
