After revealing transactions for S / 98,000 to the partner of the now former Minister of Health Jorge López, the regional governor of Cajamarca, Messiah Guevaraquestioned that in the national government there is a bad habit of politicize to the two fundamental pillars for the development of the country, such as education and health, which implies the appointment of people who are not efficient and who would act outside the law.
In dialogue with La República, the regional authority lamented this type of situation that further weakens the administration of the President of the Republic, Peter Castle.
“The problem in which the head of Health (Jorge López) is immersed, according to a journalistic complaint that led the president to withdraw his trust Through a tweet, it is an act that generates rejection and suspicion. A drastic measure was taken,” Guevara remarked.
The also former president of the National Assembly of Regional Governments (ANGR) criticized that individuals who do not work on the side of the norm and the people are appointed in the most sensitive portfolios; on the contrary, they work for personal gain.
“In the country there is a bad habit of politicizing the two fundamental pillars of human development, such as education and health. The technical aspects, experience and values are left aside,” he said.
According to his analysis, the Ministries of Education and Health concentrate the greatest amount of economic resources that are free of availability to execute programs, since public investment projects are not necessarily promoted, which require a selection procedure. “Since there is a free budget, then it is used by the operators to commit acts that border on the illicit”, remarked the regional authority.
Likewise, he specified that President Castillo has the opportunity to correct mistakes and elect the best technical charts in the Executive.
Equality for all
For his part, the dean of the Eighth Regional Council of the Medical College of Peru, Jimy Agueroexpressed concern about the appointment of ministers who do not guarantee transparency and suitability in their actions.
“What happened in the Ministry of Health is serious, because they use collaborators to make deposits of money to the accounts of a family member of the holder of the portfolio. On this occasion, there is a fact that draws attention, specifically in the reaction of President Pedro Castillo, who immediately dismissed Jorge López through a tweet, although this act needs to be formalized, “Agüero explained to this media outlet.
Along these lines, the doctor asked the head of state to act with the same speed with all ministers and other officials with complaints and investigations. “I believe that everyone should be measured with the same yardstick”he stressed.
