Despite the fact that this remark was made to the Presidential Delegate to the Bicentenary of Bolivia, Martín Maturano, more than a year ago, Law 1347 has not been amended and the National Council for the Celebration of the Bicentenary of the Country is still organized in its initial composition, which is the one that does not take into account Potosi is just as important as Sucre. During a visit to Potosí, Maturano defended the egalitarian nature of that council and asserted that Potosí get equal treatment in it, as well as the fact that he “shines for his contribution to the development of the country”.
According to the statute of 1347, the National Bicentennial Council includes two delegates from each county government, but Sucre has two more delegates, one from the mayor’s office and one from San Francisco Xavier University, apart from a delegate from the judiciary.
At the first meeting held in Potosi, Maturano noted that this region had the same or greater importance than Sucre, because Bolivia would not have existed without Potosi, but the request to amend the law was not heeded. The delegate said that doing so would be dangerous because it would lead to the intervention of “political actors”.
In a note delivered to this newspaper, the presidential delegation for the bicentennial celebration stated the following:
“The Presidential Delegate for the Celebration of the Bicentenary of Bolivia, Dr. Martín Maturano Trigo, participated in a working breakfast with the press from the province of Potosi and in a workshop with institutions and social organizations, to introduce the three pillars of the “National Strategic Plan of the Bicentenary”: a) Celebrating the actions of the sections the nine, b) commemorate, develop activities in education, culture and history that reflect the unique significance of the bicentennial of the reflective, civic and decisive contribution to the history of Bolivia (c) celebration, which includes a special program of festivities to promote the unity of all Bolivians.
“We want the celebration of the bicentenary to grow in Potosí’s perspective, there is a law passed by the previous Legislative Assembly, and promulgated by President Luis Arce; in November 2020, by constitutional mandate, it constitutes the normative basis of the strategic plan,” explained Maturano, asking the commendable press to provide spaces for the socialization of the strategic plan National Bicentennial, which allows to bypass the impact of celebration, celebration and celebration activities.
“The National Bicentenary Celebration Strategic Plan was unanimously approved by the 13 delegates to the National Bicentenary Council, who represent the country’s nine provinces.”
