Massa promises to give control of the Anti-Corruption Office to the opposition in Argentina

The Minister of Economy and candidate for President of Argentina, Sergio Massa, from Unión por la Patria, proposed on Tuesday (14) that the Anti-Corruption Cabinet be led by the opposition if he wins this Sunday’s elections (19).

Massa’s speech was made during a working group with representatives from national universities, NGOs and civil society organizations and institutions that deal with democratic quality and transparency in the public sector. The event, organized by the candidate and called Commitment to Transparency and Democracy, took place in a hotel in the center of Buenos Aires.

“I ask for the opportunity to show Argentines that the fight against corruption interests us. We want a new stage to face a new stage of control, success and transparency of politics, but we also want to have, based on available technology, an efficient, transparent State that, above all, is accountable to society”, declared Massa during your talk.

He also presented the proposal for a new public ethics law, which provides for the reform of the current legislation, approved in 1999, during the government of Carlos Menem.

“I want every Argentine to be able to control the State’s accounts online and permanently, from their cell phone,” he stated. Massa also proposed the use of blockchain technology and blind mechanisms so that there is no contact between contractors and contractors, which, according to him, would minimize acts of corruption.

The current candidate promised that ethics, integrity, the fight against corruption, spending control and transparency will play an important role in his government.

Massa mirrors the structure of the FBI to build a federal inspection agency, which would be financed with money from frauds carried out against the State.
