Resumen

JIMENEZ, Guillermo; MARSHALL, Pablo  y  MUNOZ, Fernando. The Weakness of Supermajorities. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2013, n.41, pp.359-393. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512013000200011.

This article replies to the defense of the supermajority system established in the Chilean Constitution, recently published by Sergio Verdugo. After verifying a tie between the reasons in favor and against supermajorities in the scope of general justification, Verdugo proposes starting to discuss specifically each of the rules for qualified quorum . This article rebuts both Verdugo's strategy and his general and special argumentation to justify the rules for supermajority quorums. The background of this article is made up by a defense of the link between simple majority and democracy.

Palabras clave : Supermajority; Democracy; Political equality.
