The opposition in Congress is pressing for the Economy Minister, Sergio Massa;
the Chief of Staff, Agustin Rossi;
and the head of the ANSeS, Fernanda Raverta, give explanations about the decrees of necessity and urgency that were published this Thursday in the Official Gazette and that force the social security administration and 100 other public organizations to sell their bonds in dollars.
The government's measure to obtain dollars generated a barrage of criticism and questioning from opposition legislators who warned those responsible for the areas affected by the decrees that if they go ahead with the exchanges "they will have criminal sanctions
The head of the UCR in Deputies, Mario Negri, together with the presidents of the different blocks that make up Together for Change asked the Bicameral of Legislative Procedures, chaired by campor Marcos Cleri, to "urgently" summon the
of Economy and the Chief of Staff to explain the DNU that pesify the assets in dollars of the Guarantee and Sustainability Fund (FGS) and decapitalize the savings of retirees and active workers.
The request was accompanied by Cristian Ritondo (PRO), Juan Manuel López (CC), Rodrigo De Loredo (Radical Evolution), Margarita Stolbizer (Federal Meeting) and Carlos Zapata (Ahora Patria).
They also sign the deputies Pablo Tonelli, Soledad Carrizo and Omar De Marchi, members of the Bicameral of Legislative Procedures.
However, this commission has not met since June of last year when it was established.
Even recently JxC deputies presented a note asking that the bicameral Legislative Process be enabled to move forward with the treatment of the Government's DNU.
It is estimated that there are 69 decrees that did not receive the approval of Congress.
For now, the radicals not only plan to reject the presidential DNU in the bicameral Congress, but they are going to present a proposal asking for their repeal.
Meanwhile, the deputy of Evolución Radical Martín Tetaz, with the signature of about twenty comrades from the opposition interbloc, presented a draft resolution asking that Massa and Raverta appear before the Budget and Finance commissions to explain the latest measures adopted that "they force ANSES to sell public titles in dollars at
a disvaluable price and detrimental to their assets
, which is not consistent with the purchase policy adopted by the Minister for similar titles at the end of last year."
that "under no circumstances" can Massa use the sustainable guarantee funds.
"He cannot do it because there is a law from when he was president of the Chamber that prevents the use of ANSES funds without there being a law for its change of composition. The law is very clear and there is no sense of urgency," he said. the deputy and economist.
But from the ruling party they warned that the measure was authorized by DNU, which has the force of law as of its publication in the Official Gazette, and is above the Law for the defense of the assets of the ANSES Sustainability Guarantee Fund approved in 2020.
Lisandro Nieri, one of the economic referents of the radical bloc, told this newspaper that "the Government cannot, by any type of norm, establish other departments to make decisions that affect their patrimony, which they must defend."
From the opposition they explained that because the Government does not obtain financing from the banks, it appeals to this exchange that presents it as voluntary, but that it is
for retirees to finance excess public spending.
In this sense, they repeated that whoever manages the Sustainable Guarantee Fund would be failing to comply with their obligations if they go ahead with the swap and urged the rejection of the provisions of the Ministry of Economy because they must "adequately manage these retiree funds."
Meanwhile, from the Left, Romina Del Plá announced that they will not only request the interpellation of the Minister of Economy to explain in the venue "the massive decapitalization operation that affects millions of retirees looting ANSeS funds, but also, will present a project to advance in the formation of a board of directors elected by workers and retirees to manage the retirement and pensions department.
