From ABI, some interesting recent developments regarding the so-called “Half Moon” of anti-Evo fascist prefects…
Ouch! Was that a pwnage for the “Media Luna” prefects, who did not show up to this meeting? I think so, in light of this other ABI piece:
The Executive Power and five prefects agreed on Monday to put forward a referendum on autonomies for the departments of Chuquisaca, La Paz, Cochabamba, Oruro and Potosí, whose voters did not approve this system of territorial administration in the referendum of July 2, 2006. […]In the autonomy referendum of 2006, the departments of Santa Cruz, Tarija, Beni and Pando were subjected to an autonomous regime, even though their prefects attempted to impose it unsuccessfully and unconstitutionally.
Translations mine.Of course, the named prefects were invited, but they didn’t show. As usual, they’re shooting themselves in the feet. Oh well, things went on without them, and more productive meetings are expected to take place this coming Wednesday.Goodnight, Media Lunatics. Hope you enjoy your impotence.PS: Speaking of impotence for the Media Lunatics, get a load of the latest survey results. 65% approval for the new constitution, and only 16% against. The 25th is going to be very interesting for the fascists, in a Chinese-curse sort of way.Personally, I’m enjoying watching this “half moon” crumble like the rotting green cheese it is.
On Saturday, the Executive Power anticipated the failure of the so-called “Media Luna” in its intent to prejudice the meeting of prefects on January 5, and guaranteed an autonomous State after the constitutional referendum. “It’s a strategy bound to fail for the opposition prefects, because now we are discussing the implementation of autonomies in the democratic autonomous regions”, assured the minister of labor, Walter Delgadillo.[…]Delgadillo lamented that the prefects of Chuquisaca, Savina Cuellar; of Beni, Ernesto Suárez Sattori; of Tarija, Mario Cossío; and of Santa Cruz, Rubén Costas, refuse to sign on to the Framework Law of Autonomies, when in those regions, except for Chuquisaca, the demand for autonomy came through the vote of local residents.
