The Minister of Housing and Territorial Planning (MVOT), Irene Moreira, is making moves within her work team and would be causing concern, so much so that her chief of staff, retired Colonel Gonzalo Reissig, resigned.
The reason for the resignation of the former soldier is that he no longer feels like a “trusted” figure in the circle of Moreira, leader of the ultra-conservative Cabildo Abierto party together with her husband, senator Guido Manini Ríos, according to the newspaper The country citing official sources.
Moreira would be rearming the cards of the leadership of the MVOT, which at the time was completed from the directory of Cabildo Abierto, which her husband commands together with the also senator -and is a presidential formula partner- Guillermo Domenech.
The newspaper assures that Moreira seeks to form his own current within the Cabildo Abierto, something that the weekly had reported Search last March. That, say the media, is seen “with good eyes” by lobbyists.
step to the side
All this is the origin of the minister deciding to place in the positions that respond to her, figures chosen by herself, and who are completely trustworthy. This was also the genesis of the differences with Reissig.
“I have no other job. I decided to step aside because where I was, it was a position of extreme trust in which I understood that I no longer have that extreme trust,” Reissig said when asked by the newspaper. And he added: “I carried out my task with the greatest effort I could and at a certain moment I understood that I had to step aside. And that I did. I gave it”.
