The SAE President reiterated the firm positions of the organization reached through extensive dialogue with the organized members of the Omogenia expressing the hope that they will be taken under consideration and that the political parties will find common ground on the issue.

The new Draft Law is expected to be delivered to the SAE Board before being presented to the Regional Councils and Conventions.
