The General Management of the Regional Government of Arequipa (GRA), analyzes to apply an exceptional regime while the Regional Council elects a new authority. These days a resolution would come out allowing the manager Jorge Luis Suclla sign specific executive resolutions that imply public interest or that their non-approval puts the lives of the population at risk.

For example, the GRA, through the Regional Office of National Defense and Civil Defense, presented the Contingency Plan yesterday. by rainy season 2021-2022. it implies a budget of S / 1 million 300 thousand to acquire humanitarian aid, and S / 542,000 for the purchase of fuel and prevention works in rivers and streams. However, an executive resolution must be issued to become effective and this can only be signed by the governor or lieutenant governor, not present.

“The rains are coming and there is an imminent risk for the population if the work is not done. There is a public interest and we have to do something ”, said the GRA General Management advisor, Javier Pérez.

Another issue that worries is attention to budget requirements to face a possible third wave of Covid-19. There is a need for the acquisition of medicines, equipment, and hiring of personnel, among others.

The advisor clarified that if they do not take action they are also liable to be denounced for omission of functions. “At the risk that something could happen, we have to make decisions,” he added.
