An ordinance to regulate the markets of the Libertador de Caracas municipality will be approved this Thursday, informed the president of the local council, Jimmy Gudiño.
During an interview on VTV, Gudiño explained that the ordinance has 53 articles; "Among them we have the measure that representatives of the popular economy cannot be around these municipal markets, this to benefit those who pay taxes to the municipality," he said.
He stated that the current ordinance is pre-constitutional, since it was made in 1997.
In this sense, he commented that a first meeting on the subject was held on February 5, in response to a call made by the concessionaires of the municipal markets to the mayoress Carmen Meléndez.
He added that at the meeting the need to have a regulation that was in accordance with the Constitution and at the service of users and concessionaires, as well as the municipality, was raised, reported AVN.
The ordinance will be studied in the municipalities of the country thanks to the participation of the people and local authorities.
