A new front was opened to resolve the case of alleged false data in the approval of the candidacy of the current president of the Council for Citizen Participation and Social Control (Cpccs), José Carlos Tuárez.
On Thursday, June 27, 2019, three requests for a special examination were submitted to the Office of the Comptroller General to investigate the qualification process for Cpccs applications and the sworn statement on disability and declaration of assets of the Cpccs President.
The request of revision of the requirements and inabilities for the Cpccs candidates was made by the counselors Sofía Almeida and Christian Cruz, who are part of the minority of the current Council.
The election of the councilors, which took place on March 24, was in charge of the Transitional National Electoral Council (CNE-T). Almeida said that his office received complaints about alleged falsification of documents.
For his part, Marcelo Simbaña, assemblyman of Creo, submitted two orders to Comptroller. One refers to an examination of the affidavit presented by Tuárez in his application. He also asked that the affidavit of assets be examined. “It is public and notorious that there is a certain degree of irregularities in this process.
The information needs to be transparent and the Comptroller is the entity in charge of dismissing officials who do not comply with the Law, “he said. Meanwhile, the Commission of Citizen Participation continues with the investigation of the Tuárez case.
Yesterday, Raúl Tello, president of that legislative table, summoned the president of Cpccs to answer on the accusations.
The third front is in the Office of the Prosecutor, where the Association of Workers of Education (UNE) filed a complaint against Tuárez.
