This Bill was what caused the controversy during the recent special sessions held during 18 and 19 June 2012. The controversy arose because - at the last minute - several articles were added that would have allowed the government to sell state owned shares in the electricity companies on the Panama Stock Exchange. However, after the President of the Republic, Ricardo Martinelli, said the shares would not be sold, the controversial articles were removed from Bill No. 486. (Prensa)
