This a rticle reviews the birth of the legislative delegation in Chile in a constitutional regime that rejected their inclusion in the fundamental law. The delegation of legislative power to the President of the Republic arises in the context of the implementation of a presidentialism and strong social problems. It is also inserted in the purpose of reorganizing the budget rules. The analysis of the delegatory laws (1927-1932) reveals the parliamentary will to authorize the use of legislative power by the President for the execution of his political program in areas that are-real or apparently-reserved to the law. Notwithstanding a couple of exceptions, Congress does not mandate the President with the regulation of a specific area or subject. Therefore, it can be concluded that, in its origin, more than a delegation of legislative power there is a broad authorization to use the legislative power in matters of interest to the government of President Ibáñez.
