Deputy Juan Andrés Mejía said that the Venezuelan debt went from $ 22,586 in 1999 to $ 130,633 million in 2018, in the midst of the biggest oil boom in the country’s history. “Where did that money go?”, he asked.
“The PSUV not only destroyed the country but also indebted our future. Today, every Venezuelan owes $ 4,350, that is, 1,740 months of minimum wage”, he said on his Twitter account.
The parliamentarian reported that according to the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Venezuela tops the list of countries with the largest debt/export ratio in the world with Sudan, Ethiopia and Jamaica.
Mejía blamed the National Assembly that exercised power between 2005 and 2015, ensuring that they are complicit in the serious situation facing the country as a result of corruption. “For example, while allowing PDVSA to borrow at $ 28.7 billion, production fell sharply”,he said.
