The opposition lawmakers from the Democratic Revolutionary party (PRD) and the Panameńista party delivered their minority reports, calling for the proposal to be canned. The requests were denied by the majority pro-government lawmakers. Panameńista Deputy Miguel Salas denounced that the Executive wants to sell the land of the Colon Free Trade Zone to cover the deficit, and to have more money to finance their campaigns for the 2014 elections.
In response, Hernandez denied that there is an rush to pass the bill, and the debates continue today. (Prensa)
