The draft General State Budget (PGE) provides 119,789,723 Bolivians for the category called “Communication Coordination Policy” of the Ministry of the Presidency. This amount represents an increase of 62% compared to what is budgeted in the PGE 2021.

The project is in the Planning, Economic Policy and Finance Commission of Deputies. It is expected to be treated on Tuesday.

According to the document, the amount budgeted for “Communication Coordination Policy” for 2022 is 119,789,723 Bolivians, which represents an increase of 62% compared to the budget for 2021 (73,705,898 Bolivians).

The items related to this category are: Vice Ministry of Communication, Communication Policy Management, Illimani Radio – Patria Nueva, Now the People Newspaper and Communication Management.

For Communication Policy Management, 68.9 million Bolivians were budgeted, for the Vice Ministry of Communication 32.5 million Bolivians, for the newspaper Now the People 11.6 million Bolivians, for Communication Management 4.3 million Bolivians and for Radio Patria Nueva 2.3 million Bolivians.

Deputy José Luis Porcel, a member of the Planning Commission, said that the government of President Luis Arce seeks to follow the path traveled by former president Evo Morales in terms of communication.

“The government wants to continue appealing to what happened in 14 years with Mr. Evo Morales, believing that with the means of communication that it has at its disposal, both audiovisual, written etc., they will try to convince the entire population that we are living good ”, assured the legislator of the Citizen Community.

Pórcel considers the 62% increase in the budget for the category “Communication Coordination Policy” “illogical”, given that it considers that the country needs “less speech, fewer fights”, on one side and the other, and requires more generation of sources of work and have a serious reactivation plan.
