Miguel Melendres reports in El Deber, via hoybolivia.com:
Hydrocarbons transfers half of its responsibilities to Energies
The Minister of Hydrocarbons, Luis Sánchez, delivered this morning 50% of his responsibilities, until yesterday, to the new Energy Ministry, which will be at the head of the new authority, Rafael Alarcón.
“We will be a single team to consolidate that Bolivia is the energy heart of Bolivia,” said Sánchez, during the delivery of the office of what was the vice-minister of Electricity and Alternative Energies.
“We will boost energy production for the export of surplus energy and generate resources for the country,” said Minister Alarcón.
I believe that the coca grower caudillo’s most important task is to remain in power, at all cost … Money is gone, over $180 billion dollars were wasted by this ruling ochlocracy and little if anything has been done to promote investment and to find more gas/oil fields.
In a delusional attempt to trap the minds of the people who still “trust” his leadership, this change in ministries only show his intend to go nuclear … let’s not forget the many meetings and gatherings his government held with Iran and Russia …
Like the ruler in Venezuela, this ochlocrat needs money to pay “bonuses” to secure “loyalty”, so he intends to pursue after nuclear energy, while countries like Germany have abandoned that source of energy.
