Bolivian Government Ratifies Respect for Private Property

La Paz, Nov 2 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Evo Morales confirmed his government”s respect for private property lawfully acquired and denied an alleged draft legislation to limit property rights, according to television news today.

  Rather, the plurinational State plans to finance housing for poor people and coordinate policies to ensure respect for personal property and real state, in keeping with the Constitution of 2009, he said.

During a TV interview broadcast by Fides TV, Morales said that he even asked the Minister of Public Works, Walter Delgadillo, to build houses for people who do not have.

On the other hand, the Bolivian Government is considering raising wages in public administration, covering between 180 thousand and 250 thousand jobs that are paid by the Treasury.

When he became President in 2006, Morales cut his own salary as a prelude to an austerity policy limiting payments to 15 thousand bolivars, or about two thousand dollars.

But now, he admitted, the proposed increase responds to a policy to retain a mass of professionals and technicians working for the State, who could resign in search of better earnings in the private sector.

Morales, who encouraged the law against public corruption and did not hesitate to imprison his collaborator Santos Ramirez, who caused costly damages to a state enterprise, reiterated that he will never be charged with profiting from public funds.
