Panamanian president-elect advocates Government of national unity

Panama, May 6 (Prensa Latina) Panamanian President-elect José Raúl Mulino called to build a Government of national unity to address the complex problems that overwhelm the country, particularly unemployment and poverty.

Mulino said that he had spoken with other presidential candidates, like José Gabriel Carrizo, from the ruling Democratic Revolutionary Party; and with Rómulo Roux, from Cambio Democrático and the Panameñista party, to consolidate that strategy.

He also asserted that he will seek political consensus and promote a pro-private company Executive, but without forgetting the neediest.

In his appearance, Mulino highlighted that three months of political campaign became a university and a lot of learning in visits to the communities to learn about and listen to the concerns of the most humble people.

Some of his promises were a passenger train that will link Panama City with the westernmost end of the country, delivering unfinished works such as hospitals and aqueducts, building a road network, in particular between La Chorrera and Santiago de Veraguas, and renovating the deteriorated Inter-American highway.
