State re­sponds to sen­a­tor

Imperial Valley Press - - NEWS -

A state of­fi­cial has re­sponded to the res­o­lu­tion ap­proved by Mex­i­can sen­a­tors call­ing for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Baja Cal­i­for­nia Gov. Fran­cisco Vega for al­leged mis­use of pub­lic funds.

Sec­re­tary of Gov­ern­ment Fran­cisco Rueda said in a press re­lease Sen. Ale­jan­dra León, a Mex­i­cali mem­ber of the Work­ers Party, must prove her ac­cu­sa­tions against the gover­nor.

The sec­re­tary added the state has ad­dress­ing the anom­alies de­tected by the Mex­i­can Su­pe­rior Au­di­tor’s of­fice.

The of­fi­cial re­called that any dis­ci­plinary ac­tions must be pre­scribed by Mex­ico’s Au­di­tor.

Ac­cord­ing to Rueda, the anom­alies iden­ti­fied by the au­di­tor are com­mon.

“It is clear that the res­o­lu­tion has a po­lit­i­cal mo­ti­va­tion,” Rueda said. “How­ever, all ques­tions and in­for­ma­tion re­quests will get an­swered.”

The sec­re­tary also said the is­sue with re­tired teach­ers’ pay­ment is due to the lack of ap­pro­pri­a­tions made by the Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment dur­ing this year.

On Thurs­day, Gov. Vega and Sec­re­tary of Ed­u­ca­tion Miguel An­gel Men­doza an­nounced meet­ings with Mex­i­can of­fi­cials in or­der to ne­go­ti­ate ex­tra­or­di­nary funds to pay the teach­ers.
