Although the ruling party defined it as a priority, the Communications Act, still does not enter the agenda of the plenary session at the National Assembly.
Rosana Alvarado, first vice president, said this week that they would only have a plenary on Friday, in which they will discuss the urgent reforms to the Mining Act. And the topic of communications, she added, still has no date.
The ruling member Mauro Andino, who in the past period was speaker of the project, has not received any provisions on the matter. According to him, in order to continue in charge of the text, he would need a plenary decision.
Angel Vilema, AP assembly member, believes that the new authorities of the Assembly, meeting in the Legislative Board (CAL) could ratify Andino as the rapporteur. Thus restarting the project again.
The draft law of Communications has been processed for three years. The latest report, which is ready to vote, has 127 items.
