Communist Senators Quit Debate in Protest of Government Tactics

The government invoked a parliamentary procedure that limited senate debate on amendments to the new labor law proposed by its Communist allies, who left the Senate chamber in protest. This was in contrast to the ten days of debate and 5,000 amendments tolerated in the discussion of the Taubira Law (on gay marriage). This is no way to treat a part of the governing coalition.
