1.1. Opposition candidates that seek to renew their mandate, with those most absent from sessions at the top

Journalist Laura Serra (Political section, paper edition) and the LNData team worked together to study the attendance records of 74 national deputies (members of the lower chamber of Congress) that aspired to extend their mandate in the Parliamentary Elections of 2013.

The conclusion the team arrived at after studying the data is that, of the universe of 74 candidates, the opposition legislators were the ones presenting the highest indices of absenteeism in the last three and a half years.
