This Monday, December 13, the seats of senators and deputies of the Broad Front received the directors of the political force in state agencies, to analyze the “dismantling of public companies” and the “judicialization of politics.”
After the meeting, the FA coordinator, Ricardo Ehrlich, senators Liliam Kechichian and Silvia Nane, and deputy Gustavo Olmos held a press conference.
The parliamentarians denounced that in OSE the government eliminated the 240 million dollars that the Broad Front left to invest in the supply of drinking water and sanitation.
They questioned that the Solís chico dam will not be built for the supply of drinking water, and both the Casupá dam and the sanitation works in Pando norte were canceled.
With respect to ANTEL, they indicated that the company has a 30% restriction on investment, and 20% on its expenses, which is added to the record increase in expenses and about 180 million dollars accumulate in cash.
From the FA they denounced that “there is no strategic plan” in ANTEL and it is the worst semester of investment performance. They indicated that only 28 kilometers of fiber optics were installed in new lines, there was an increase of 1% in 4G and LT base radio for data transmission, and 5G technology has stopped.
Regarding ANCAP, the FA questioned that the current administration commissioned audits on the Paysandú furnace and the payments to Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), which have been shelved for lack of merits.
They insisted on the need to discuss the electoral promise of the current president Luis Lacalle to lower fuels.
The Broad Front rejected the government’s decision not to replace the human capital of public companies, because this determines a drop in the quality of services, and generates an impulse to impose a strategy to replace public activity by private companies.
