Fernando Llanos is in favor of the AFP retirement

What is your position with the AFP withdrawal?

—I am absolutely convinced that people have the right to make a decision about their money. You are not doing the fund contributor any favors, you are giving them the right to choose what to do with their money.

Each person will use it as they see fit, it is not mandatory to take it out. The only thing that has been done is to give the owner of the money the right to choose what he does with 4 UIT of his money.

What did you think of the debate in Congress over the AFP withdrawal?

—Fuerza Popular’s position is strange. When the multiparty proposal comes out, it bears the signature of the Fuerza Popular member on the commission. What happened in 16 days? Did they sign out of conviction?

The representative of Fuerza Popular on that commission had a multiparty formula. If you sign, you are approving or supporting the project. Then, the reform formula appears.

Also, we must look at the vote on the previous question. Whoever has a photo of the vote on the previous question, the one raised by Luna and Bellido, will be clear about Fuerza Popular’s position.

Also, I’m going to do interviews. I am my only boss and my only employee, or, well, I am an employee of my community, who is leading me by the hand into this space.

After the approval of the AFP withdrawal, many people have related your departure from América TV and Canal N due to the interview you had with the Public Policy advisor of the AFP association. What could you say about that?

— People are absolutely free and intelligent to realize things. We all are. I’m not going to say anything more about that.
