After the Chamber of Deputies yesterday rejected the project that seeks extend the validity of the Electronic Family Pocket (BFE), With the initiative now being resolved by the Joint Committee, the Minister of Finance, Mario Marcel, said that he hopes that this will not affect the price of paraffin.

“Regarding this project, which is a project that increases a series of social benefits, there is a part of the opposition, particularly from Renovación Nacional and the Republican Party, who voted against it, and who prevented the constitutional quorum from being reached despite having a large majority,” said Marcel.

He added that “the implication of this is that the entry into force of this law, which would have allowed to stop and reverse the increase in the price of paraffin, will not be able to apply next week and, therefore, people who in this winter context who consume paraffin will have to pay more for paraffin, at least for the next week, as a result of this vote, it seems very contradictory to me with the type of concerns that are expressed regarding the cost of other inputs with respect to other expenses that families make.”

He added that it was “regrettable that this happened, it happened as it sometimes happens in Congress, where a law is voted down in order to obtain more resources, but, as we have seen before, the truth is that it is a rather useless type of management.”

In this regard, he stated that “if the project had been approved today, the increase in the price of paraffin this week would have been reversed next week, unfortunately that is not going to happen, we will have to wait a few more days, but unfortunately that was the decision taken by a part of the opposition and well, those are the concrete consequences.”
