The deputies of the National Assembly approved this Tuesday the first debate on the bill for the Organization and Functioning of the Council of Controllership of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
“We are presenting this bill as a matter of parliamentary urgency given the need of the Venezuelan people for the expenditures that we have approved here and from the Presidency-in-Charge of the Republic,” said Deputy José Prat at the beginning of the debate after the regulatory majority was reached.
“As we know, last February 12th, we created a Comptroller’s Council, and this law has the function of regulating the actions that will be taken from this Council,” he added.
“Since the usurpation, public resources have been squandered, without any kind of control and without the people of Venezuela being a priority. In view of this situation, we are presenting this law, and we intend that the resources we have approved and will approve be managed with total transparency and within an indispensable legal framework,” the parliamentarian said.
In this sense, the deputy for the state of Bolivar stressed that the management of the country’s public resources must have a rigorous comptroller’s office that allows for the supervision of all investments in favor of the Venezuelan people.
