According to Business News Americas "we are already immersed in the pre-electoral period, mayoral and Congressional elections will be held on January 18. It will be very difficult at this time (for Congress) to deal with this matter. The presidential election is on March 15," he indicated.
The combined concession of the La Unión and Acajutla ports is said to interest the Dutch company.
According to private operators, shipping companies will continue using port Acajutla, so the new port would only generate losses for the Salvadoran state.
Logistics group Ransa expressed its interest in the concession of the country's port system.
For vice president Ana Vilma de Escobar, it will be difficult to consider the port concession again due to the political situation.
