The executive secretary of Alianza PAIS, Ricardo Zambrano, indicated that he will ask the Comptroller to carry out an internal audit for the use of $ 18 million delivered as part of the party fund since 2006.
These statements were made yesterday at the headquarters of the movement. There Zambrano warned that the previous directive must answer for the use of those resources, in addition to the contributions that the militants delivered throughout that time.
The legislator said they discovered, by payment roles, that the payroll had not decreased despite the fact that several managers had left the group. “We had 61 employees and we have reduced them to less than 30; those who left have been liquidated according to the law, “he said. He also maintained that there was no neat handling of the revenues, so much so that they have debts with the State, employees and suppliers.
As an example, he mentioned that $ 140,000 is currently owed to the Internal Revenue Service (SRI). He also indicated that the Prosecutor’s Office reviewed the status of the headquarters building in Quito, last Thursday, to identify what is missing, as well as sympathizers of the previous directive painted the walls with insults.
He said that the same happened at the headquarters of Cuenca, so they will try to replenish this week what is needed to continue operating around the campaign for the Yes in the popular consultation.
He commented that this type of actions has only caused the name of those who once represented our organization to be tainted. “We are going to rebuild a movement that guarantees the diversity of criteria.” About the disaffiliation of leaders said that they do not affect and that the movement is not owned, “that will not stop us, the organization will be reborn from events like these and we will do it with more strength and joy,” he said.
The Executive Secretary mentioned that once the electoral process is over, a national assembly will be convened to fill the provincial directives throughout the country. (I)
