The executive power will partially veto the Law for the Redistribution of the Social Spending over a disagreement on one of its points.
The objection seeks to limit the delivery of the Human Development Bond (BDH for its Spanish acronym) to those over 65 living in the border areas and the Amazon.
The second resolution, approved by the Assembly, states that the Ministry of Economic and Social Inclusion (MIES for its Spanish acronym), should strengthen their efforts in these areas to ensure access of BDH to people older than 65 and poorer.
The head of the Internal Revenue Service (SRI for its Spanish acronym), Carlos Marx Carrasco, explained yesterday that this provision has an error on extending the bond, without distinction whatsoever, to every person older than 65 in the Amazon and the border area. “This would imply that whatever the economic status of the person, the BDH should be given to such person, “he said.
Carrasco says that the aim is to benefit groups who have no social security and revealed that the issue is the only reason for the presidential veto. (MZ)
