💰 About 500 million dollars would be the national government’s debt with the municipalities, according to the president of the Association of Municipalities of Ecuador (AME), Raúl Delgado. According to what he said, the municipalities have not received resources since February of this year, so many cantons cannot adequately face the pandemic. The AME will hold a meeting on Wednesday with Finance Minister Richard Martinez.

📌 Measurements:

Alexand️‍ María Alexandra Ocles resigned from the direction of the National Risk Management Service (SGR), after last week a complaint was made about overpricing in the purchase of food kits to deliver to people in vulnerable conditions. The kits were being billed at $ 150, when their real value was 86. In his replacement, Lenín Moreno appointed Rommel Salazar.

📄 President Lenín Moreno issued decree 1047, which amends decree 1041 on the 50% reduction in the salaries of president, vice president, ministers and vice ministers. The reason is that the current legislation does not allow other public officials to earn more than the president, so the new decree establishes that the reduction «does not imply a decrease in the salary scales of the public sector» and will only be valid until 24 May 2021, that is, until the end of this administration.
