In a massive Assembly, the institutions and organizations of El Alto declared this Saturday an emergency due to the 2022 Population and Housing Census, the issue of limits, and also demanded from the national and departmental governments the resources generated by the collection of tolls.

The so-called meeting of the “Assembly of the Alteñidad” was held in the Villa Ingenio stadium and brought together thousands of Alteños from different social organizations, institutions, national and regional authorities. At the meeting, the Manifesto of the Alteñidad was approved, a seven-point document that includes everything from the request for items for health and education to the elaboration of a Municipal Organic Charter.

“This manifesto has seven points in which the political, economic, social issues and the Census are included, which concerns us, the people of El Alto. The different organizations of El Alto have worked constantly to be able to do this and to be able to unite and reach the same goal. So this is thanks to them and the Driving Committee will have to go to socialize the different determinations of this document”, said Mayor Eva Copa, after the conclusion of the event.

The mayor pointed out that the economic issue is a fundamental part reflected in the document, since it is resolved to require the central and departmental government to allocate a percentage of the collection for the concept of tolls at the entrance to the city so that they go to the municipal coffers.

“We demand that the central and departmental governments immediately allocate a percentage of the collection for the concept of tolls to the entrance of our city, which enter the coffers of the Alteño municipality or, failing that, we will demand that the Municipal Government of El Alto create our own tolls”, warns in the approved manifesto.
