The strike in the National Assembly continues 13 days before municipal elections, causing a loss of $20 million loan from the IDB.
Tuesday, January 6, 2009
The local media and experts have warned that said strike in the Assembly will cause delays in the passage of important laws and beneficial international loans. The General Budget for 2009 has not been approved either.
During the first working session after two months of conflict, the Assembly approved six contracts for loans totaling $108.
Lawmaker Guillermo Osorno Molina expressed his complete opposition to the initiative, making it impossible to get the 47 votes that are needed.
The country continues to be divided after municipal elections. Some are claiming victory, others are alleging fraud.
In the midst of a political polarization the elections have come to be about the Sandinista President, Daniel Ortega.
