Legislative initiative seeks to exclude high officials including deputies from the fuel subsidy

On the afternoon of this Tuesday, August 9, the Economy and Finance Commission of the National Assembly endorsed Bill 41, which excludes high-ranking state officials with good salaries from the fuel subsidy.
This bill “which limits access to state fuel benefits or subsidies in the Republic of Panama” was proposed by Deputy Amelie García and expressly seeks to exclude from these subsidies principal deputies, ministers, deputy ministers, general secretaries, directors and deputy directors. of autonomous entities.
According to deputy Ricardo Torres, who chairs the Economy and Finance Commission, “every official who earns well should be excluded from this subsidy since it is for the Panamanian people who really need it.”
As for the magistrates of the Supreme Court of Justice, prosecutors and judges, he made a moral appeal so that if they “earn well” they do not make use of this benefit.
For his part, Deputy Ariel Alba said that he will support the initiative when it is debated, since personally, as a citizen, he does not make use of this subsidy because he does not need it.
“I agree that senior officials or all those people who have sources of income higher than those of the normal citizen, should not have access or do not make use of this resource,” he said.
