US congressmen pass electoral reform bill

WASHINGTON, January 13 & nbsp;/TASS /. The House of Representatives of the US Congress approved on & nbsp; Thursday the Democratic electoral reform bill in & nbsp; the country, but & nbsp; it has practically no chance of & nbsp; approval by senators. & Nbsp; is referred to in an & nbsp; article published in & nbsp; The Washington Post.

This initiative, as the Democrats say, is designed to protect the right of Americans to & nbsp; free expression of will. In & nbsp; a number of American states, where Republicans have & nbsp; authorities, in & nbsp; last year they tightened the rules regarding control during & nbsp; voting, in & nbsp; including by & nbsp; mail. Republicans explained this by the need to prevent election fraud. The Democrats claim that & nbsp; these steps are being taken by their opponents to make it difficult for certain categories of citizens to vote. The & nbsp; bill in question is & nbsp; in particular aimed at & nbsp; opposition to these measures.

The Democrats in the & nbsp; House of Representatives of the US Congress managed to ensure the adoption of this initiative on the & nbsp; simplified procedure by & nbsp; including it in & nbsp; another bill, despite & nbsp; opposition from & nbsp; Republicans. Further, the document should be considered in the & nbsp; Senate. As the newspaper notes, the likelihood of approval of the initiative in the & nbsp; upper house of Congress is extremely low, since the Republicans are strongly opposed to it.

The & nbsp; publication also states that the & nbsp; & nbsp; chances for & nbsp; adoption of the bill have decreased even more due to the & nbsp; position Democratic Senator Kirsten Cinema (from & nbsp; Arizona). She said on & nbsp; Thursday that & nbsp; would not & nbsp; support the efforts of her & nbsp; party members to & nbsp; change the rules for conducting debates in the & nbsp; upper house of the US Congress with & nbsp; aim to avoid their & nbsp; deliberately delaying & nbsp; indefinitely. Cinema emphasized that & nbsp; these changes would aggravate the disagreements between the two backbone parties of the United States.

We are talking about & nbsp; a reception related to the & nbsp; seizure of the parliamentary tribune with the & nbsp; purpose not & nbsp; not to allow the adoption of any & nbsp; bill. This practice is called filibustering in the American political lexicon. Sometimes the threat of such obstruction is enough to remove an issue from the & nbsp; agenda.
