Faced with a radical change in the consensus of Congress, the Secretary of the Legislative Association assured that they would not allow unreasonable dismissals, even if they were non-partisan employees.
Following the announcement by Ernesto Castro, the new deputy leader of the new Ideas party and the new leader of the legislature, that there will be a deep “restructuring” in the executive branch of the legislature, the company’s staff is in a state of uncertainty.
Luis Ortega, general secretary of the Legislative Assembly, explained that they would protect all levels of workers who truly carry out their work, regardless of whether they belong to political or corporate parties.
“The constitution is very clear and Section 218 states that officers and workers are in the service of the state and have no political affiliation. It cannot be seen at any time because the deputy must finish, and the worker must leave,” Ortega said.
The job instability felt by the executive staff changed the structure of the legislature dramatically after the February 28 elections.
The Arena bench has been significantly reduced: it will be 14 from 37 delegates; The FMLN was reduced from 23 to 4 legislators; PCN, 9 to 2 delegates; Hit, 10 to 5; And PTC, 3 to one.
This leads to a new system of staff assigned to legislative fractions. However, considering the unemployment situation in El Salvador, Arena Vice President Norman Guijano called on the incoming legislature to “humanely” with workers. Guillermo Gallicos, an ally of the ruling party in Ghana, also said he was confident the impact on staff would be minimal.
“The only thing that appeals is that the seniority of the legislature is respectable, because the minimum requirement for the country is instability, especially respect for the quality of labor and labor, because absolute power (63 votes) does not give them the right,” said Guijano.

While they have the exact details of the final study, which the Supreme Court (DSE) is expected to conclude this Wednesday, they said in recent days that Castro, a by-election of the new laws. New Assembly.
“When we have the right input on the state of the legislature, all the dark situations that have arisen will come to the fore and we will make the appropriate decisions. We are going to change the idea that we are so determined to change everything, the way it works and the commission completely,” Castro told YSK. L explained on the radio.
Caligos thinks there will undoubtedly be a refinement in the legislature, which is not Ghana’s idea, but they are determined to review the situation in detail.
“We have to adjust with the new realities, which means these people have to stop their positions, there are those who have gone from parliament to corporate committees, these cases need to be reconsidered, I am advancing the criteria, we are not talking about this, but yes, it is important for all employees of the legislature to have peace of mind, every There is a family behind the person, ”Galligos said.
Castro, the new legislator
Until just before the election, Castro served as President Naib Bukelin’s private secretary, and during the election campaign he emerged as the ruling party’s legislator.
In fact, Castro said they do not plan to share the legislature’s rights with another party, and that the new proposals will maintain the leadership of the legislative body, which enters May 1, 2021, until April 30, 2024. They have won some congregations in partnership with Ghana.
In this regard, Gallicos pointed out that Nuvas Ideas wants to reduce the number of members on the board of directors, which currently has 11 delegates.
Guizano, who last made 14 reshuffles when he was Speaker of the Legislature during the first term of the current legislature, went from 14 to 11 directors.
“Until May 1 the legislature will be completely different from what we are used to administratively, a reduction in the number of members of the board of directors and many more things can be considered,” Galicos said.
Guizano, Galicos and deputy Rodolfo Parker, members of the PTC, agreed that there was no study on how to move from the current legislature to the next level, but that the government still owes a debt of gratitude to its operations and suppliers.
“The Ministry of Finance is committed to making these transfers and we believe it will now implement them,” Parker said.
In December 2020, PCN Assembly Speaker Mario Ponce announced that the debt with suppliers to the Assembly was about $ 1.1 million compared to the eight-month arrears because the Treasuries did not provide them with the money to pay the dues.
Parker said he was unaware that the Treasury had made any relocation to cancel the assembly suppliers. “I didn’t know an exchange had come,” he explained.
