"We Have Done In Three Years What No Other Government Has Been Able To Do" - Henriquez

PoliticsPanama's Foreign Minister Roberto Henriquez defended the government of Ricardo Martinelli today. Upon completion of three years (out of five) in office, Henriquez said "what we have done in three years, no one else has been able to do." Henriquez said the speech given by Martinelli on Sunday 1 July 2012 was was conciliatory, in which he called for a dialog. In his speech before the National Assembly, the President asked others to "stop denigrating" the country abroad, said Henriquez, who is also the Vice President of the Cambio Democratico (CD) political party. Henriquez also spoke about the CD rally held on Sunday at the 5th of May Plaza. He said the activity was done to demonstrate that the government has backing. In fact he said the CD brought together 100,000 people. "Nobody has been forced ... this country belongs to everyone," he said. (Prensa)

Editor's Comment: Yup, concur. I've been in Panama for more than 25 years, and this is the very first time any administration will be able to simply point at their accomplishments and the work they have done and just say - "See what we have done? Want more of that? If so, then you should elect the CD candidate in 2014." Without a doubt, they have been getting it done, making improvements, upgrades, building the country. You might not like the CD as a whole or Ricardo Martinelli personally, but they sure have been knocking it out, and I applaud them for that. This is by far the best and most productive administration I've seen, in 25 years. And I should say I consider a certain degree of corruption to be a common denominator between all Panamanian politicians, so it get's eliminated when solving for "x".
