Moral sanctions for work shy deputies

THE NATIONAL Assembly is aiming to  put moral pressure on its  work shy members to fill the role they were elected to perform and for which they are well paid.

Assembly President Rubén De León says the Assembly will begin taking measures to ensure members attend committee hearings due to high levels of absenteeism at the last session.

He said the measures which include posting attendance records on the Assembly’s web site. will be “a kind of moral sanction” and urged his colleagues “to give due discussion to legislative projects.”

De León said that discussions of several projects had to be delayed during the last session due to rampant absenteeism.

This happened despite the fact that deputies have alternates who can take their place in hearings when they cannot attend.

Only two deputies had perfect records in the last session, independent Deputy Ana Matilde Gómez and PP Deputy Juan Carlos Arango
