The expressions came after a meeting of the PNP Caucus, where it was found that the appointee does not have the votes.
In this way, the senatorial president explained that Brignoni has the votes of senators Miguel Romero, Axel “Chino” Roque, Henry Neumann Zayas, Migdalia Padilla, Carmelo Ríos, Carlos Rodríguez Mateo, Luis Daniel Muñiz and William Villafañe.
