El Salvador: Reorganization proposal divides opinions

Salvador, Jun 5 (Prensa Latina) President Nayib Bukele's proposal to reduce the number of municipalities in the country from 262 to 44 divides opinions among those who believe it will reduce or increase bureaucracy.

The presidential initiative, which was presented during the presidential message on June 1, will be introduced in the legislative agenda tomorrow, Tuesday, to be analyzed by the deputies.

There are mixed opinions on the intended reduction of municipalities in El Salvador, some say that it is an attempt to centralize more power and that it has electoral purposes that will benefit the ruling New Ideas party.

The mayor of San José Guayabal, Mauricio Vilanova, is categorical in saying that the reduction will save resources that will serve for the municipalities themselves.

“It is very complicated to continue maintaining so many municipalities, I see it as positive”, he affirmed.

Forces close to the government point out that the modification will represent a saving of approximately 250 million dollars, while the opposition, both from the left and the right, assures that there is an electoral motivation.
